Over 25,000 Israelis are without power due to the inclement weather, the Israel Electric Company told Israel Radio on Thursday.

IEC customers in Be’er Sheva, Arad, and Ein Gedi have been disconnected from the electric grid, according to Israel Radio.

The electricity provider said it anticipates a larger than usual consumption of power due to the extreme weather conditions and that it was preparing to generate more if necessary.
