The Jerusalem Post - - NEWS - • By MOSHE CO­HEN

Fire­fight­ers res­cued some 50 chil­dren and sev­eral kinder­garten teach­ers from three Re­hovot kinder­gartens in the wake of tor­ren­tial rains on Thurs­day morn­ing.

Fire­fight­ers from the res­cue unit were called to the flooded kinder­gartens and car­ried out the res­cues us­ing rub­ber dinghys and ad­vanced res­cue equip­ment.

Heavy rains fell across Is­rael on Thurs­day with a marked drop in tem­per­a­tures after a pleas­ant win­ter week with mild weather.

The stormy weather caused flood­ing across the coun­try. Ad­di­tional rain is ex­pected through­out much of the coun­try through­out the week­end, with some ad­di­tional flood­ing pos­si­ble in the Re­hovot area.

Sara Ruben­stein and Maariv contributed to this re­port.
