Border police and firefighters rushed to Kfar Chabad this morning in central Israel after cars were trapped on roads subject to massive floods.

In total, 8 persons were extricated from the flooding, four of them children.

The rainy weather of late poses a threat to people and cars attempting to travel in areas prone to flooding and strong currents.

The wadis in Israel's deserts, for example, are prone to flash floods that can be life-threatening for those traversing them in cars or by foot.

Israeli police have called on people to take extra care in accordance with road and weather conditions.
