Middle East

Post #1 by GrannyGrottbags » Wed Jan 09, 2013 1:52 pm

Unusually heavy winter rains have hit the Middle East, forcing the closure of main access routes to Tel Aviv. Torrential rains also swept through desert Jordan, sparking widespread flooding and traffic chaos but bringing welcome water to reservoirs in one of the world's 10 driest countries. Flash floods tore through Lebanon, where several rivers burst their banks cutting highways off. Howling winds have swept away tents in refugee camps - and there are warnings of a major snowstorm approaching.
