Power outages were felt throughout the country Monday as heavy winds followed Sunday’s rains, causing trees to collapse and damaging cars and electrical cables.
Outages occurred in several areas in western and central Israel, mostly on the coastal plain.
However, despite the less-than-welcoming weather, 150,000 holidaying Israelis visited the country’s national parks and nature reserves.
Cable television service was also disrupted as a result of the windy — and in some areas, rainy — weather.
On Saturday, Israel welcomed the first rains of the year. The showers continued on Sunday night, filtering through the porous roofs of sukkas as the country’s Jewish population celebrated the first night of Sukkot.
