Tidal swells have resulted in flooding in parts of the capital, Male’ City.
The worst hit locations this Saturday morning were the Alimas Carnival and Raalhugandu – both located in the Henveyru district.
Flood water in the two locations seeped onto the roads.
Huge tidal swells also hit the Raalhugandu and Artificial beach later in the afternoon. Tidal swells which hit Artificial Beach resulted in sand and flood water seeping onto Boduthakurufaanu Magu.
Maldives Meteorological Service issued a nation-wide white alert warning of tidal swells across the country ahead of the weekend.
Male’ City was repeatedly affected by flooding due to tidal swells this weekend, including in the Industrial Village.
