Rain in Jerusalem

Jerusalem of Gold became Jerusalem of Dark on Thursday night when the season’s first winter storm snapped trees and brought down power lines in the capital city, leaving residents to cope with increasing cold weather on their own.

Winds of at least 40 kilometers per hour (25 miles per hour) and driving rain came down in sheets, causing local flooding and loosening up the root systems of old bushes and trees.

A number of parked cars in the city were damaged by falling trees, and several neighborhoods in Jerusalem lost power for varying periods of time as well.
