Northeastern parts of Greater Cairo were the worst affected, including Nasr City and areas around Cairo’s international airport. Flights were delayed after flooding damaged a terminal building and blocked surrounding roads preventing passengers from reaching the airport.
Locals blamed the city’s poor drainage systems for the flooding, which caused traffic chaos on the city’s streets. Schools and universities have been closed in parts of Cairo, Giza and Qalyubia.
Local media reported that one person died as a result of flooding in 10th of Ramadan City, Greater Cairo.
