This week's heavy rain has caused a massive problem on the highway between Casablanca and Rabat
|Rising damp? A lack of drainage created a lake|
The rain exposed a problem in the road construction - a severe lack of drainage! As the rain fell the water accumulated and turned one section of the highway into a giant swimming pool. Cars and trucks were stranded and police and rescue vehicles had problems evacuating the large numbers of drivers in trouble.
Hopefully a drainage system will be quickly installed so that this kind of problem is averted in the future.
|Many other areas experienced minor flooding|
On Thursday many areas in the Kingdom experienced rain and snow. Fortunately, the week ahead looks fine with little rain and temperatures rising into the mid-twenties. Fez is expecting fine weather over the holiday weekend with sunshine and daytime temperatures between 21 and 23 degrees Celsius.
