Rainwater Floods Modiin Shopping Center

Police evacuated hundreds of shoppers from the Azrielli shopping center in Modi'in Tuesday after rain water flooded the building. The water reached a depth of 50 cm. – about 20 inches – in some places within the mall. Sales representatives and other employees, used to floods of shoppers but not of water, perched atop their sales counters and made frantic calls to their employers.
