    <TD class=ArticleBody>
    Dubai: Rain has lashed the UAE, causing widespread flooding across the country and traffic chaos.
    While Abu Dhabi has largely escaped serious rain, the major roads in Sharjah have been completely flooded.
    Weather forecasters have predicted more heavy rain for Wednesday morning.
    On the roads, police diverted traffic away from the Emirates Road in both directions because the rain has made it impassable.
    Police also cordoned off the National Paints roundabout in Sharjah, making it more difficult to access the major roads.
    Several schools in Dubai and Sharjah have cancelled lessons for the day, while Our Own English High School in Sharjah cancelled exams.

    Residents in the Al Nahada area of Sharjah have reported their cars being partially submerged by the heavy rains. <HR style="WIDTH: 42px" SIZE=2>
