“We celebrated my daughter’s birthday over the weekend… On Tuesday, we woke up to flooding in our hotel rooms… We are safe at the moment… And we are still seeking alternative accommodation.

“As I am talking to you, I am with another UK couple who had booked in the same hotel… We are also waiting for hotel management for guidance.”

Cabonge said he was glad that his family was safe under the circumstances.

“What is important is that my daughter enjoyed her birthday before this mess … It’s all over, including the Mall of Dubai, which is flooded. I will probably be back on Saturday, but I am also told the airport is flooded.

The flooding that has hit the middle east is tipped as the most devastating rainfall experienced since records began 75 years ago.
