Rain intensity in the Mount Canaan region near Safed hit a 73-year record on Sunday, with rain falling at 22 mm per 20 seconds, 28 mm per half an hour, and 38 mm per hour. The rain intensity was so high in certain areas that it broke historical records, according to the Israel Meteorological Service. Rains of this intensity are only supposed to happen every 100 years, but the head of climatic services at the Israel Meteorological Service noted that the high intensities observed align with the trend of strengthening events with intense rainfall as part of climate change. Rain is expected to continue throughout the country on Monday, but it is expected to be less intense.
