Five (5) Plagues; Covid, earthquakes, floods, wildfires and a scorpion plague: The Middle East’s weekend of chaos. Region hit by extreme conditions, as scorpions wash up in people’s homes and cars are covered in ash

People in several Middle Eastern countries were on high alert over the weekend, as a barrage of extreme weather events swept the region.

Emergency services have been deployed, as countries scramble to deal with extreme and unusual conditions, with many onlookers frantically posting photos and videos online.

Middle East Eye takes a look at some of the weekend’s natural disasters.

Wildfires in Lebanon

Helicopters could be heard circling over Lebanon’s south on Sunday, following an outbreak of fires across various towns the previous evening.

According to Lebanese authorities, the fires have killed at least one person, a foreign worker, who died after the fires reached a warehouse in the city of Jdeideh, north of Beirut

Lebanon’s prime minister, Najib Mikati, ordered the authorities and the army to take immediate action in tackling the fires, which could be seen near the southern port city of Tyre.


The blazes, which have been attributed to the high temperatures, spread to several mountainous regions, and in some cases burned close to residential areas in nearby villages.

According to local media, civil defence forces and volunteers have been trying to battle the fires and contain them from spreading since Saturday evening. High wind speeds have caused the fires to spread even further. 

Online, people have shared concerns that the widespread fires are wiping out large green spaces and damaging the environment.

Using the hashtag #الجنوب_يحترق (the south is burning), many social media users are trying to raise awareness about what is happening.  

Reports state that fires broke out in the Akkar mountains, the Bekaa valley, and Mount Jbeil as well as destroying swathes of land near the villages of Hennieh and Majdel Zoun. 

Some also shared photos of ash covering their cars in Beirut as a result of the fires.


Earthquakes in Iran

In Iran, people on Sunday were forced to flee their homes as two strong earthquakes struck the country. 

According to state TV, one person, a 22-year-old, has been reported dead, after an electric pole fell on his head as a result of the earthquake.

The earthquakes, which hit southern Iran near the port of Bandar Abbas on Sunday, were 6.3 and 6.4 magnitude. The tremors could be felt as far as Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia. 

The Iranian Red Crescent has sent teams to estimate the damage in the region.

Iran lies on several seismic fault lines, so regularly experiences moderate tremors. This weekend’s earthquakes, however, were unusually powerful.

Scorpion infestation in Egypt

Egyptians in the southern city of Aswan were left scrambling for safety as a horde of scorpions took over the city. 

Three people were killed and at least 500 were stung, overwhelming hospitals in the area.

Reports state the scorpions were washed into the streets and peoples’ homes, where they were seeking refuge from the intense weather conditions

Aswan’s governor, Ashraf Attia, has placed restrictions on travel and traffic due to the low visibility levels caused by the extreme weather. 

Citizens have been urged to stay at home and avoid places where there are trees, as well as driving on motorways. 

Schools in Aswan have also been ordered to close.

Egypt’s Meteorological Authority say they expect intermittent rainfall to continue in the coming days, as well as thunder, in many parts of south Sinai, and southern Egypt, including cities such as Minya, Assiut, Sohag, and Luxor.

Thunder and floods in Saudi Arabia

A plunge in temperatures in Saudi Arabia has resulted in floods in many parts of Jeddah, on the country’s Red Sea coast.

The constant rainfall in recent days has made travelling difficult for residents. Many shared videos of motorways and main roads flooded.

Saudis have been using the hashtag #جده_الان (Jeddah now) to share videos of the extreme weather conditions.

Although it is not unusual for Saudi Arabia to experience heavy rains during this time of year, the thunderstorms have taken many by surprise as roads were blocked, leaving people unable to travel around easily.

For many countries in the Middle East, the recent COP26 summit in Glasgow, derided by many as a failure, threw into stark relief the dichotomy at the heart of climate change: they are not chiefly responsible for global warming, but they will be badly affected by it.

Matthew 24:42; Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Matthew 25:13; Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mark 13:35; Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.

Luke 21:36; Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).
