Kinneret Rises 16 Centimeters

Stormy weather in Israel brings much-needed water to the Kinneret.

(Wednesday) The Kinneret rose 16 centimeters over the past 24 hours. It’s current height is 211.34 meters below sea level.

The Kinneret is still short of around 300 million cubic meters in order to be full. While Israel’s underground aquifers are short between half a billion to a billion cubic meters, all caused by the droughts over the recent years, and of course, our drinking it.

Snow began to lightly fall in Hebron and Kiryat Arba on Wednesday morning, while Jerusalem is gearing up for snow expected in the early afternoon.

The rains have caused severe flooding in different parts of Israel, and reached a point where the Israeli navy was called in to rescue trapped people.
