June showers cause flooding in Sderot, Ashkelon
Heavy showers reported all across Israel; drainage system collapses in Sderot as cars sink underwater; 49mm of rain registered in Kibbutz Dorot; Ma'alot and Karmiel suffer power shortages.

Heavy showers caused flooding in the cities of Ashkelon and Sderot early Wednesday morning, with vehicles sinking in streets submerged with water.

 

 

“The drainage system has collapsed," said Danny Hazan from Sderot. "Since the early morning, the rain hasn’t stopped. Everything is flooded. People were not prepared for this. Families have already opened pools in their backyard (for the summer)—all of a sudden it rains. Unbelievable.”
