Weather of Arabia - On Wednesday, the lenses of photographers documented poignant footage of the sinking of Al-Beiruti Café, which is considered one of the most prominent cafés in the capital, Baghdad, as the capital and other governorates witnessed heavy rains at the end of last week and the beginning of this week, resulting in floods and torrential rains in several areas.

The rising water level of the Tigris River raises eyebrows after heavy rains

Several regions in Iraq, including the Kurdistan Region, witnessed heavy rains in the recent period, which led to an unprecedented rise in the water levels of the Tigris River. Cameras documented this rise, as the water swept away many boats, and flooded the area of one of the well-known cafes. It is located on the opposite side of Al-Qashla Clock Park, which is famous for its proximity to Al-Mutanabbi Street in the center of the capital, Baghdad.

This rise is a striking phenomenon, especially after a long period of fears of drought and falling levels of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.
