    Jeddah: Heavy downpour in many parts of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia including Makkah, Mina and Jeddah has caused traffic jams in the respective areas. Water is flooded on the roads and it is difficult for the cars to clear up. However, Jeddah is witnessing excessive rainfall after quite a long time and the rain in Jeddah is reported to be heavier than other places.
