Casablanca - Rabat Highway Becomes Swimming Pool !

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.
