Trains Grounded, Gush Etzion Highway Closed

JewishPress Logo

Jerusalem still is digging out of the “snowstorm of the century,” and the main highway from Tel Aviv was closed temporarily Sunday evening to allow workers to move freely to restore electricity to hundreds of families without electricity for more than two days.

Schools will be closed in the capital on Monday.

The road to Jerusalem from Gush Etzion, which was buried under more than two feet of snow, remains closed.

Train service in the country also has been grounded because of the collapse of a retaining wall, knocking out rail service to Modi’in and Ben Gurion Airport. Flooding on tracks has knocked out train service to Be’er Sheva, Tel Aviv, Herzliya and Jerusalem.
