How interesting to witness a true flashflood while visiting the UNESCO World Heritage site of Petra in
Flashfloods are mentioned to the flocks of visitors to Petra and I remember the story of an entire group of tourists being swept away by a flashflood in the 1960s. After this unfortunate incident, a bridge was built over the mostly dry stream-bed in order to avoid future such accidents. From this bridge, one can clearly see on the right the tunnel through which the churning water will run when this small river is in spade.
This short video shows a similar flashflood but this time the water is running through what is the usual main street which the visitor reaches at the end of the narrow called the Siq, right across from the picturesque Treasury House.
