Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, HH Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, has issued a compensation of $2.5m (AED9m) to those affected by recent rains in the emirate.

Under the directions of HH Sheikh Saud, a committee that includes the directors of several departments and local bodies in the emirate, was established to assess the damage caused by rain.

The members of the committee conducted field visits around the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah. They met with people whose properties were damaged, and prepared a report about the situation, which was then presented to HH Sheikh Saud, according to the state news agency, Wam.

The move to provide compensation aims to offer swift support to individuals and families whose properties have been damaged, and help them overcome the situation and return to living a dignified life.
