Surburbs of Lebanon’s capital Beirut were badly affected, in particular Ouzai and Jnah. Roads were swamped and vehicles stranded. The tunnel to Rafik Hariri International Airport was flooded, as was the case in previous times of heavy rain, including November 2014 and December 2013.
In Israel, local media reported flooding in areas around Ashdod and Ashkelon. Two motorists were rescued from flood waters in Yavne.
