Heavy rainfall has caused partial closure of some road tunnels in and around Doha. Ashghal has urged road users to avoid using these tunnels until they are cleared and open for traffic.

Meanwhile, Qatar Meteorology Department said that the “thunderstorms are expected to continue until the early hours of the evening, accompanied by strong winds exceeding 30 knots.”

Ashghal said on their social media that “Heavy rainfall caused partial closures in tunnels: AlMassila, Al Sadd, Al Rayyan / 22 Feb, Immigration Intersection, Al Rayyan Road tunnels, Omar bin Al Khattab tunnel. Please avoid using these tunnels until they’re cleared and open for traffic.”

“Continue to monitor the main road networks and drainage networks across the country and take action during the good rains,” Ashghal said.

Due to heavy rainfall that happened and still expected, please be careful while driving and avoid areas with water accumulation.
