By Hana Levi Julian JewishPress

The Nature and Parks Authority has announced it is closing a significant number of hiking trails throughout the country as of Monday ahead of potentially dangerous weather conditions.

“Due to extreme weather warnings, it is forbidden to take walks in several sites in the north of Israel from Monday the 18th until Wednesday the 20th,” reads an alert on the Authority website. Hikers are directed to call the Authority’s call center at *3639.

High winds began entering the region over the weekend, with temperatures dropping on Sunday and continuing to drop further on Monday. Meteorologists say the incoming weather system is expected to further reduce humidity and bring stronger winds as well. Brush fire warnings have been raised across the country as a result.

This is now a worldwide problem. Not sure if this is being manipulated by the
'powers' or H' is just directing them and in the meantime somehow cleansing the world, before the coming of Moshiach. There is definitely tremendous changes in the weather patterns everywhere. Everything is controlled by H' anyway. We pray for His protection and blessings and the best remedy would be for klal Yisrael to do teshuva!
