We had moved a couple of miles ahead of Bahrain when we felt it had started drizzling. Still manageable, we moved ahead. But after 3 miles it started raining cats & dogs. We were not prepared, had to force stop. An army convoy had also stopped there, probably due rain. It was a small locality i do not know the name but a few shops and people had taken shelter in them. We also ducked under those wooden structured shops.
