Jordan – At least 11 people, including a young girl, were killed as flash floods engulfed multiple cities in Jordan on Friday. Heavy downpours triggered the flash floods, forcing more than 3,500 international and domestic tourists to be evacuated from the tourist city of Petra in southern Jordan. Ongoing rainfall in the Daba’a region of southern Jordan also led to the closure of the desert highway in both directions. A large number of vehicles were left stranded as the highway flooded and traffic trapped those attempting to leave.

Wales – Flooding has continued to hit parts of Wales for a second day causing widespread travel disruption. There are amber and yellow warnings in place for wind and rain, with Pembrokeshire set to be worst hit by the severe weather. The M48 Severn Bridge has also been shut eastbound due to strong winds. Flooding has also blocked the railway line between Milford Haven and Haverfordwest which is expected to cause disruption until early Saturday.
