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.
