At least 18 people have died and four are missing in Saudi Arabia after nearly a week of heavy rain that has triggered flash floods in the desert kingdom, the civil defense authorities said on Thursday.
People have drowned in several areas of the country, according to a statement quoted by the official Saudi Press Agency.
The body of a man was recovered on Thursday in the Kowaiyia district.
Another body was found in the city of al-Baha, and transferred to King Fahd Hospital despite rising water levels.
Rescue teams evacuated six villages in the south-western Bisha province, after a sand dam at the valley of Tabala partially collapsed.
