Flows and floods in the Sharon plain, Emek Hefer and Menashe areas

posted in: Israel | 2

A weather system brought significant amount of rain to central and northern parts of Israel towards the end of 2018. In some areas, over 150mm of rain was measured within 2-3 days. Let’s follow the flows and explore affected flooded areas.

Poleg Reserve near Netanya was flooded, and forced me to look for alternative viewing points.

Indeed, nearby Udim Reserve provided a good viewpoint to Poleg Stream, which flooded nearby areas.

This is how it looked on January 26th, 2018.

This is how it looked two days later, on January 28th, 2018.

And another view down the stream, on January 26th, 2018.

and two days later, on January 28th, 2018.

Passing by HaOgen junction on road number 4, I noticed a significant water flow. What looks like an impressive stream now, is actually a water canal draining surrounding agricultural areas…

Alexander Stream is a bigger guy, draining vast areas in Samaria. No wonder it provided a great show.

Hadera Stream drains vast areas in Samaria as well.

Taninim Stream drains the hilly areas of Ramot Menashe

This is how it looked near road number 652 near Binyamina on January 26th, 2018.

And this is how it looked the next morning, January 27th, 2018.

All the streams we met flow into the Mediterranean Sea. The Taninim estuary is exceptionally beautiful, nearby the village of Jisr A(l) Zarka.


Drive carefully…

Storm aftermath

I have been suspecting that it is this recently built chimney in “Orot Rabin” power plant that is creating all those storm clouds.
