Means of transportation, according to a report from the NASA website.

 

NASA publishes satellite images of the Emirates before and after the floods

Landsat 9 images show the city and surrounding area on April 3 and April 19, before and after the storms.

On April 19, the Landsat 9 satellite passed over the area for the first time since the storms. The image was taken using the OLI-2 (Operational Land Imager 2) satellite, and showed flooding in Jebel Ali, a town located 35 kilometers southwest of Dubai.

Water can be seen covering Sheikh Zayed Road, a main road running through Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Patches of flooded areas can also be seen in Khalifa City and Madinat Zayed, two residential areas located southeast of downtown Abu Dhabi.

The water can be seen in blue in the picture, and the floods appear in the industrial area in Jebel Ali, directly south of the port and near the green resorts and parks south of Palm Jebel Ali.
