Deadly flash floods in the Negev

Todd Bolen has been teaching in Israel for the past two or three weeks. He reports on heavy rains in the Negev that resulted in flooding in the area. Read the full report here.

Sometimes individuals fail to realize the force of the water and drive their vehicles into it. This often results in danger, and even death.

Nearly two years ago I wrote about Rivers in the Desert with photos showing a wadi after a night of rain. Read that article here. One of the photos I made the morning after a heavy rain in the mountains of Judea is included below. This photo show the normally dry Wadi Kelt (Qilt) at Jericho.
