Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz - Breaking Israel News
As Jews across Israel celebrated the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hashana earlier this week, parts of the country were hit with extreme flash flooding and, in some areas, hail, in an unusual change of weather.
“It felt like the apocalypse, the rain has been torrential, there were about 10 lightning strikes in seconds, and even with your windshield wipers on high, it was impossible to see anything,” Mark Katz, a National Parks Authority employee, told the Times of Israel.
Last week’s sandstorm is reported to be the worst to hit the region in Israel’s history. As the dust finally dissipated, it was only to be replaced with freak rainstorms and flash flooding in the Arava and Judean deserts.

Israel’s meteorological service issued flash flood warnings Tuesday, even going so far as to close the Eilat Airport, grounding domestic flights until the late evening.

The flash floods led to road closures in from the central region of Mitzpe Rimon all the way just north of Eilat. The extreme change in weather also caused parts of southern Israel and the Galilee to be hit by a rare hail storm. Witnesses reported hail the size of ice cubes.

Police closed a 10-mile stretch of Route 90, which runs along the shores of the Dead Sea, from Ein Gedi to Metzoke Dragot because of flash floods, but reopened it several hours later

The spring storm began at approximately 3 a.m., and in a span of a few hours over an inch and a half of precipitation fell, well over the average 0.9 inches Jerusalem receives in the entire month of April.

The unusual rain flooded roads and houses in Jerusalem, even causing hypothermia in some of those trapped, rescue workers said. Parts of the capital city were even pelted with hail.
Sergeant Nir Abramovitch, a commander of a rescue unit, told Ynet news that “In many cases the people stood on the roofs of their cars, freezing from the cold; they were wet and scared.”
