The Kinneret is currently 210.8 meters below sea level, and just 2 meters below the upper red line (above which they need to open the floodgates), and 4.2 meters above the black line (below which, the water quality and the lake’s ecosystem will likely be severely damaged).
The Kinneret rose 4 centimeters in the past 3 days. And 10 centimeters over the past week.
It’s almost 2.5 meters higher than it was at the same time last year.
And for the last bit of good news, it’s raining in some parts of Israel today, and it’s expected to rain in much of Israel for most of this week.
