The UAE has been battered by severe weather over the last four days.

The National Meteorology Centre (NCM) said experts have carried out over a dozen cloud seeding operations in the past few days in order to harness rain from the clouds in the country.

Experts carried out sorties to fire flares in the clouds present to enhance the process of rain. But the amount of rain experienced in the country could not be independently linked to the process.

The weather body said the seeding process could only be done when there are clouds over the country.

UAE Minister for Climate Change and Environment Dr Thani Al Zeyoudi said, "Preserving the local environment and ensuring its sustainability top our list of priorities in the UAE. Given growing pressures on our environment, including climate change and pollution, actions to sustain our resources have gained a heightened importance."

Thani commented on the present weather scenario in the country saying it could be very well related to climate change.

Thani also said, "Over the last 50 years, we've managed to build a very sustainable country."
