Video: Traffic light dislodged as a result of heavy rains

Videos sent to this site show heavy rain falling in the south of Malta.

Earlier, a storm reared its head in the heart of Malta. So much so, that a traffic light ended up in the middle of a rainy road in Vjal ir-Rihan, in San Ġwann.

Meanwhile, the public is asked to avoid passing through Triq il-Mitħna l-Ġdida, Mellieħa. On social media, the Mellieħa Local Council said that it was dangerous because an amount of soil had fallen on the road due to heavy rain.

During the day, the Malta Meteorological Office issued a strong wind warning to the effect that the wind from the North / North East would be strong to very strong at times with moderate or heavy rain on the Maltese islands. This warning will remain in force until 10pm tonight.
