Heavy rainfall on Thursday caused extensive flooding and damage in several Israeli coastal cities, with the continued downpours making this November the rainiest in some parts of the country in over a quarter century.

Among the worst hit areas were Hod Hasharon, Herzliya, Ashkelon and Nahariya, all of which have recorded over 100 millimeters of rain since a bout of stormy weather began Wednesday. Dozens of people trapped in cars or buildings by the rainfall were rescued Thursday, according to Channel 12 news.
