While most heavy precipitation and winds had subsided by nightfall on Thursday, stormy weather continued – for the sixth day in a row – to pound Israel for the brunt of the morning and afternoon.

All in all, at least 14 people have died in the winter storm in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, the Palestinian Authority and another three in Israel. With the torrential rains and winds that swept the region for nearly a week, meteorological agencies in both Israel and Lebanon have called the storm the worst in 20 years.
