Heavy rain fell in throughout the country on Sunday, causing damage and flooding roads. An underground parking lot at Haifa's Lev Hamifratz shopping center was flooded, and two mall employees were evacuated by firefighters after being trapped inside. Elsewhere in Haifa, a truck was towed from a flooded underpass as water levels rose to two meters. Also on Sunday, the Israel Electric Company issued a statement warning the public to prepare for stormy weather from Sunday night onwards. The public was requested to remove objects which could potentially crash into wires, such as shutters, antennas, clotheslines, potted plants, planters and more. Over the weekend, the water level of Lake Kinneret rose by four centimeters.
