The level of Lake Kinneret rose 14.5 centimeters between the end of last week when the storm began and the beginning of this week. The Water Authority expressed satisfaction with the increase in water levels but anticipate more winter rain. Maariv online quoted Water Authority Spokesman Uri Shor as saying that the expected snow and rain would ensure that the improvement in water levels continues.“This last period of rain was good. This week, too, local rainfalls are expected to increase the Kinneret water level, as well as a beautiful event that we are waiting and hoping for on the weekend,” he said.
