Heavy thunderstorm hit Malta

We managed to take this shots from tal-Qroqq as heavy thunderstorm hit the Maltese Islands on Tuesday night (09-12-2014).

The storm caused flooding in some low-lying areas, hail at Zebbug and Siggiewi while Gozo and some localities in the North of Malta suffered power cuts.

A small chapel at the highest point of Dingli Cliffs was extensively damaged when it was struck by lightning. The chapel, dedicated to St Mary Magdalene and known as il-kappella tal-rdum, was restored four years ago. The chapel was similarly struck by lightning 38 years ago.
