Heavy rainfall has transformed the desert north of the Saudi capital, Riyadh, into what resembles a small sea, with just one road rising above the vast expanse of water. Now the stunning site has been captured on a viral YouTube video shot looking down from the sky.

In the video which was produced by Mohammad Al-Taweel, you can clearly see the flood waters stretching out for miles. The sight is not dissimilar to the view of King Fahd bridge that runs through the Arabian Gulf.
