Cold Wave,Palestine (West Bank, Gaza): The announced extreme heavy rain fall and snow storms hit the West Bank and Gaza on 10 December 2013 and are still striking throughout Palestine. The heavy rain and snow has generated floods in several parts of Palestine and 20 families have been evacuated from their houses with the support of PRCS.

Cold Wave,Lebanon: Storm Alexa pushed temperatures below freezing in northern Lebanon and some areas of the Bekaa Valley, which is dotted with informal refugee settlements. The winter weather heaped another layer of misery on the already grim existence of many of the estimated one million Syrians in Lebanon who have fled the civil war raging in their homeland. Many refugees are sheltered in flimsy tents with often only a plastic sheet covering the ground.
