Have a look: the storm struck!

As you’re all aware, the long-awaited storm struck and boy, did it strike hard. We’ve made it our business to collect as much footage of the storm as possible.

First up: Gozo’s very own Niagara Falls. Who said we don’t have natural waterfalls in Malta? The below was taken at Marsalforn Valley by Jacek Chojnacki

Speaking of flooding, here are a few other spots in Malta that seemed to have gotten the short end of the stick. Below is a video exhibiting just how flooded streets in Burmarrad were. Taken by Chris Thorpe.

What about Xlendi in Gozo, we hear you ask? Here’s a video of the flooded streets yesterday, caught by Kristian Bowles. It was estimated that 100mm of rain fell in Gozo!

All that being said, summer doesn’t seem to be over just yet. Despite a couple of ‘possible thunderstorm’ and ‘possible showers’, high temperatures don’t seem to be budging anytime soon. 

Are you looking forward to some rainy weather or would you rather it’s summer all year long?
