Ashkelon received more than a centimeter of rain in just one hour - between 9am and 10am Monday morning, according to the Israel Meteorological Service.

The extreme flooding comes just days after heavy rains hit Jordan's capital, Amman, killing four people and leaving hundreds stranded as cars were submerged.
