Although we are so grateful for such photos, it’s always better to be cautious during such storms and stay at home if it’s possible. In any case, you must check the Safety Guidelines issued by the General Directorate of Civil Defense.

Saturday will boast heavy rainfall with thunderstorms, strong winds, and snowfall at 1000 meters and above. The rain is expected to subside on Sunday, with a slight increase in temperature. Now, enjoy some fascinating scenes captured in the moments.

It’s amazing to see how the Lebanese flag is still there despite the wind, the splashing water, and the storm. Deep, eh? May it standstill facing the crisis.

It’s amazing how some people can stand still observing the approaching storm instead of running; just standing there in fascination, and one can only feel peace; peace in the cold, the rain, and the wind.

Right, some can be crazy! These fellow Lebanon in Manara, Beirut, didn’t just swim, but also tanned despite the heavy rainfall! What can we say? Lebanese do tend to brave storms and crises and find something, anything actually even if crazy, to enjoy.
