Flash floods in Jordan kill at least 11

At least 11 people, including a young girl, were killed as flash floods engulfed multiple cities in Jordan on Friday, a government official said..
     Heavy downpours triggered the flash floods, forcing more than 3,500 international and domestic tourists to be evacuated from the tourist city of Petra in southern Jordan, according to Jumana Ghuneimat, Jordan's minister of state for media affairs and government spokeswoman.

Rescue operations continue across Jordan. So far, 60 people have been rescued and nine transferred to al-Nadeem hospital in Madaba, Ghuneimat said. Authorities have also deployed a drone to search flooded areas for missing people and gauge damage caused by the storm.
     As search and rescue operations continue, Ghuneimat advised the public to exercise extreme caution and to deal with the weather conditions in a "very serious manner."
