Heavy rainfall and consequent flooding have impacted Cairo since the afternoon (local time) of Tuesday, October 22, leading to significant transportation and business disruptions in the capital. As of Tuesday evening, various main roads remain impassable, and crowded conditions have been reported at railway stations due to train delays.
More rainfall is forecast to continue through Saturday, October 26. Transportation disruptions, along with possible flash floods, are expected in the coming hours and days.
Individuals in Cairo are advised to monitor local weather reports, avoid areas directly affected by flooding, confirm road conditions before setting out, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities. Avoid walking or driving through floodwaters; 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult.
