Traffic stood at a standstill for several hours in Tel Aviv after flooding closed a major highway.
The Ayalon Highway closed early Tuesday morning and remained closed throughout the day, as the Ayalon and Yarkon rivers overflowed in the city. The Ayalon is usually a dry riverbed.
Trains running in the Tel Aviv area also were disrupted by flooding and the city's train stations shut down.
Israelis were asked to avoid traveling to Tel Aviv except in emergency situations.
