Kinneret Up Another Centimeter

The water level of Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) rose by a centimeter in the last 24 hours and stood, Tuesday morning, at 212.97 meters below sea level.

A rise of four meters stands between the current level the level at which the floodgates at the southern end of the lake would have to be opened to prevent flooding along the northern waterfront in Tiberias and other places.
