What is cloud seeding?

According to this related article, cloud seeding can happen when special aircraft and/or ground-based generators implant particles to increase the amount of rainfall.

Now- there is no concrete evidence to support claims that cloud seeding is to blame for Dubai’s recent weather.

 

As the TikToker goes on to explain, this rainfall has seemingly gotten out of hand as the flooding has gotten really intense, causing streets and homes to be impacted. Allegedly, Dubai has gotten more rain in the last 12 hours than it has comparably seen in an entire year. People are also being urged to stay home to avoid getting caught outside since the infrastructure has reportedly not been built to withstand this amount of rain.

In addition to this viral storm, there is another one reportedly coming. As the TikToker explains, there is no way to tell how much of this alleged rain is supposedly from cloud seeding or just nature, itself.
