A bus flipped over at Rotem Junction in Israel's south on Thursday night, Magen David Adom emergency medical services reported.

Rescue teams evacuated all of the passengers of the bus, which was traveling along Road 25 in the Negev Desert and pummeled by strong winds.

50 passengers were lightly wounded, according to ZAKA. All passengers were conscious.

Earlier Thursday, 9 youth were killed on a school trip to the south when flash floods swept them away from their bus. The extreme spring storm has caused mass casualties and damage across Israel.
