Due to the unbearable effects of heavy rainfall across Egypt, schools and universities have been forced into emergency closure.
According to reports from the BB, the heavy rainfall which began very early on Monday morning left many key roads flooded with massive traffic jams.
Egyptian Prime Minister, Mostafa Madbouly, said that decision was taken to help people cope with the rainfall, according to China’s state-run news agency Xinhua.
The Egyptian Meteorological Authority forecast that many parts of the country would continue to be hit hard by three-days of unstable weather, Xinhua added.
Social media users have shared photos and videos showing the effects of the rain:
