PHOTOS: Flooding, power outage affect Al Sadd St.

A burst pipe poured water onto busy Al Sadd Street on Wednesday night as many residents were out doing some last-minute Eid shopping.

Doha News first received reports of the flooding opposite Royal Plaza around 8:30pm, although shopkeepers in the area said it had started a bit earlier.

Authorities were on the scene to control traffic relatively quickly, but it still took several hours to staunch the flow. The water cascaded down a side street, flooding the back parking lot of one apartment building and causing a power outage for residents there.

Were you affected? Thoughts?
