Following yesterday’s reports about flooding in various areas of Malta, a similar situation appears to have developed today, even if possibly not as widespread as yesterday.
One particular locality which seems to have suffered the brunt of today’s storm was the Pembroke arterial road, with vehicles ending up stalled in the middle of the road with waters reaching up to their middle, and drivers having to exit the cars through the windows and wait on the walls at the roadside for assistance.
TVM is informed that a number of Local Councils have been working against time in recent days to clear water culverts from the dirt and debris which accumulates during the summer months, in anticipation of the first rains.
Meanwhile, the Franciscan Friars have appealed for help as the Ta’ Ġieżu convent in Valletta is being flooded with rainwater as a result of damage in the roof. The friars posted on social media that the membrane is damaged, and walls, shafts and yards have to be sealed at an estimated expenditure of 50,000 euro.
