A number of people were injured, traffic was disrupted and electricity was cut Wednesday due to winds that reached up to 110 kilometers per hour as a late-February winter storm swept across the country.

In Tel Aviv, a large tree was toppled on the city's central King George Street, taking down an electricity line with it. The street was closed to traffic as crews worked to clear the tree and restore electricity.
