Weather Report: Orange weather warning of heavy rain and thunderstorms

Cyprus Meteorology Department on Friday issued an orange warning valid from 9:00pm on Saturday until 1:00pm on Monday.

The warning says that combination of at times prolonged rain and local heavy thunderstorms is expected to affect the area.

The met office said heavy rain is forecast over the next three weeks over the Eastern Mediterranean as part of Storm Carmel, expected to hit Cyprus from late on Saturday night to Monday.

People in general were urged to limit their movements, especially if heavy rainfall is expected, and to move away from basements to higher floors.

If outside, people should not try to cross flooded streets on foot, or on a bicycle or motorcycle, and are recommended to turn around and drive away if in a car and avoid power lines and areas prone to rockfall.

It was also recommended that if stuck, people should abandon their car to avoid the risk of getting caught inside if it floods or gets carried away by the water.

After the weather subsides, the public are urged to avoid areas that have flooded as it might be dangerous, the asphalt may have cracked, the water may be contaminated and could have brought with it items or animals.
