As Dubai gets roasted in extreme temperature as high as 50°C, the country has come up with modern method to deal with it.
The UAE’s National Center of Meteorology has come up with a unique solution that resulted in a monsoon-like rainfall. Videos of monsoon-like showers submerging roads and flashes of lightning on highways have gone viral on social media.
Interestingly, the enhanced rain is just a 'fake rain', created using drone technology known as cloud seeding. According to this technique, drones are used to give shock to the clouds which in turn clumps them together to produce precipitation.
The NCM's official Twitter handle shared a video where it shows rain pouring down on a highway as the cars navigate through it.
In 2017, UAE invested massive amount of $15 million in nine rain-making projects to create artificial rain. Incredible, isn't it?
