The Jerusalem area literally exploded early this morning with thunder, lightning and rain, as well as hail, which is sticking on the ground.

There has been almost constant thunder and lighting since 4:15 AM. Rain is falling at a rate of over 10mm per hour. As of 8AM, 35mm of rain has fallen.


Normally it doesn’t rain at all after the Pesach holiday.

The fire department rescued people stuck in their cars from floods inside Jerusalem.
