Fear not. There was no flood. However, media and public were frenzied when a “small leak” was found in the aquarium at Dubai Mall.
Water poured out of the structure but none of the 33,000 sea creatures advertised as living inside, got out. The aquarium has the capacity to hold 10 million litres of water.
The lower-ground and ground floor areas were cordoned off and cleaners were seen mopping the floor. Most shops in the vicinity were also shuttered.
