Common sense: If the south-west monsoon blows and it rains, only then do we, who have been exposed to the scorching heat for so many months, feel comfortable and cool. All those places which were dry for so long are revived after the rains.
Water evaporates from the ground and cools in the Earth’s atmosphere, forming clouds. When these clouds become heavy enough, they are cooled by the air and fall to the earth as rain. All regions of the world receive more or less rainfall. But do you believe that there is a place in the world where it never rains?
What can happen; what can be done? You can expect light rain everywhere. no it’s true. There is one village in the world where it does not rain. The people of that village are facing problems without rain for many years.
Al-Hudeeb is a village located in Sana’a, the capital of Yemen. The village is situated on a red sandstone hill at an altitude of about 3200 meters above ground level. Although it is cooler than other places, there is still a risk of drought.
It rains at different times of the year all over the world. But Al-Hudeeb village always remains dry. The climate of this village is dry as it never rains here. The village experiences extreme heat during the day and severe cold at night. As soon as the sun rose in the morning, the weather became hot again.
But the question why it is not raining in this village troubles everyone.. Water resources are scarce in this part and the reason is that this village is situated at a high altitude where clouds do not accumulate. Clouds accumulate in its lower layers.
The location of Al Hudayb village is about 3200 meters above the plain. Normal rain clouds accumulate within a radius of 2000 meters of the plains. That is why clouds do not gather on Al-Hudayb. And if there are no clouds then there is no possibility of rain. Hence there is no rain here.
