Morning rainfall caused heavy flooding in Malé on Wednesday, Mihaaru reported.

The flooding has made it difficult for pedestrians to use the road, especially in Maafannu and Galolhu ward.

Water levels have reached over two and a half feet near the state hospital IGMH, causing parked motorcycles to fall over.

The falling of a large tree due to the rain also damaged three motorcycles parked near Ghaazee building.

The Maldives Meteorological Service has released a Yellow Alert for torrential rain, with heavy thunderclouds between Raa and Thaa atoll, and later between Kaafu and Laamu atoll.
