SANAA, Aug. 17 (Saba) - President of the Supreme Political Council Mahdi al-Mashat has met with the Capital Sanaa governor Hammoud Ubad, the Governor of Sanaa Abdulbasit al-Hadi, and deputy minister of public works and roads engineer Mohammed al-Dhari.

During the meeting, the President al-Mashat listened to a detailed explanation about the causes of the great damage to homes and roads caused by heavy rains and floods, including allowing construction in flood passages and low agricultural land, in addition to the lack of infrastructure over the past years capable of absorbing the huge amount of rain and torrential rains that have taken place in the capital and various provinces.

The President stressed the need to start the construction of floodwater drainage channels on roads and streets, and the commitment not to implement any new roads except by creating its infrastructure and drainage channels so that the problem does not repeat.

The meeting touched on the work of the technical committee, which was formed by engineers to conduct a field survey and track the path of rain and holes in order to work on repairing them as soon as possible.

For his part, the deputy minister of public works and highways emphasized the need for the General Authority of Survey and Urban Planning to take care of the fluid designs and stop the construction on agricultural land to avoid any future disasters.

The Governor of Sanaa reviewed the damages that the province suffered and the measures that were taken to limit these damages in this regard.
