Beirut – AA
The Lebanese territory was subjected to a snow storm, which the Meteorological Authority called “Farah”, which led to heavy snowfall on the mountain tops, which led to the cutting off of a number of main roads that the concerned agencies are working to open and open lanes for cars to cross in them, where the security forces allow push cars The four-wheel drive is only allowed to pass through it after it is opened, while the roads are closed at twelve from midnight until six tomorrow morning.
Heavy rains, accompanied by thunderstorms and strong winds of up to 90 kilometers per hour, fell on all Lebanese lands, including the capital, Beirut, in the first storm of its kind during the current winter season.
The Lebanese received the storm with great joy, as the storm revived the winter tourism season, on which a large segment of the Lebanese rely on income for a whole year because of the sports and tourism activities that take place in the designated areas on the tops of the mountains. The melting of snow also leads to feeding the Lebanese rivers with water, while the rains lead to an increase in the water level in the underground wells, on which a large segment of the Lebanese depend to secure water, whether for domestic or agricultural use.
