Gaza – Dozens of homes and shops flooded and many roads in Gaza City were blocked yesterday night due to heavy rainfall in the Gaza Strip. Eyewitnesses reported that the areas most affected by the heavy rainfall were Al-Shuja’iyya, Al-Zaytoun, Al-Tuffah, Sheikh Radwan, and Muftaraq Al-Sahaba, as rain water flooded homes and shops in these areas and dragged many cars away.
New Zealand – Homes flooded and a school sustained “significant” damage after 42.2 millimetres of rain fell in Roxburgh within a couple of hours on Sunday afternoon. The flash flooding closed roads, leaving the small town isolated on Monday and residents cleaning up mud and silt. Residents of a Central Otago town recovering from widespread flooding are being told to expect to be without water until at least Wednesday.
