Flooding in Netanya
Israel could see extreme rainfall in the coming fall, Dr. Amir Givati from the Department of Environmental Studies at Tel Aviv University said. "This is due to unusually high temperatures in the Mediterranean Sea in July and August. When energy from a hot sea meets colder air, storms can occur which is why most weather models predict heavy rains this fall. As of October, we can expect exceptional rain storms and extensive flooding."
