VIDEO PAGE: The Flood in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.. November 25, 2009
There are not words to describe how horrible this tragedy was for many people living in Jeddah and it's outskirts. We who were living at the KAUST campus, 80 Km North near Thuwal, were inconvenienced in many cases. But many of us did not understand the enormity of the disaster in Jeddah. Over 100 people died, and some estimates say there are still hundreds missing. This page is an attempt to collect a perspective on it from many sources.
The videos linked to here may not be suitable for younger children... This first amateur video from YouTube gives a perspective on the force of water that came rushing down from the hills East of Jeddah, into the Eastern neighborhoods. Some of these vehicles had families in them. (Use the start-stop controls)..
NOTE: This is a quick set of links only at this time...
