I lived in Taiz and saw several large animals swept away in flash floods. Anyone who sets foot in a wadi during monsoon season is reckless.

/once saw a jeep on which a boulder larger than the jeep itself was deposited by a flash flood.

Yemen is actually one of the more fertile parts of the Arabian peninsula.  Mountains to funnel the winds off the Red Sea, and they catch some of the Bay of Bengal monsoons too.  Gum Arabic comes from a gum tree native to that area, IIRC.
