Umm-e-Aiman, a resident of Sharjah, lamented the dire circumstances, citing the absence of power and internet connectivity since the early hours. With water supply also compromised, residents find themselves confined within flooded neighborhoods, unable to access nearby amenities like hypermarkets.

Poonam Chawla, a resident of Mudon, recounted the challenges of being disconnected from the online realm since Tuesday evening. Despite having electricity, the inundated roads and driveways prevent residents from venturing out. This predicament extends to children, who are unable to participate in online classes due to the lack of connectivity.

The disruption in essential services has not only impacted daily life but has also hindered educational endeavors, with children unable to engage in distance learning activities. As residents await the restoration of normalcy, the challenges posed by the aftermath of the historic rainfall highlight the resilience and adaptability of communities amidst adversity.
