Faced with brutal heat waves in many corners of the world, in Dubai, the sheikhs have decided to mitigate the thermal wave with drones that have achieved not only refreshing rains, but also copious downpours.
The ultimate location for lovers of the good life now boasts a new installment of sophistication beyond the vehicles that roll on its roads and its luxurious mansions, with clouds seeded to alleviate the sweltering weather.
In the United Arab Emirates (UAE) they have come to suffer a share of temperatures that reached up to 50 degrees Celsius.
Faced with this, the Emirates National Center for Meteorology (NCM) decided to take matters into their own hands and create rains where there are none.
Since 2017, in the Arabian peninsula they have invested 15 million dollars (million dollars) in nine projects that seek to respond to this situation.
Average rainfall in the country is just 4 inches, according to local weather services, but thanks to drone-powered cloud seeding technology, the expected downpours to relieve the heat in the area have already begun to fall.
