ADEN, Yemen, At least three people died, following heavy rains and flood that struck several parts of the country's southern and eastern provinces, over the past few hours.
An Aden-based security official said that, torrential rains, lightning and high winds also caused a number of injuries, in addition to blocking main roads in Aden and other neighbouring provinces.
Two death cases were reported in the southern city of Aden and another in the south-eastern province of Shabwa, as a result of flooding caused by heavy rains, he said.
Civil properties, including cars were damaged and many houses in Aden's neighbourhoods were submerged as a result of the heavy rains that continued for hours, he added.
In the neighbouring southern province of Lahj, local media said, the rain water mixed with sewage in the city's neighbourhoods are threatening the lives of residents, as they may suffer from spread of diseases and epidemics.
Yemen's National Meteorological Centre warned of continuing turbulent weather, explaining in its daily bulletin that, heavy rains with high winds may continue to hit the southern coast and the adjacent areas.
