BEIRUT — Heavy rainfall flooded several major roads, causing traffic jams across Beirut and its suburbs Tuesday evening, according to L'Orient Today's journalists on the scene.
The Traffic Management Center wrote on X that rain water flooded the Dbayeh-Zalka highway. Roads in Jdeideh as well as those leading to the airport were also flooded by heavy rainfall, TMC said.
The airport road, the Dbayeh-Zalka highway and the Dawra highway are all heavily congested with traffic jams, our journalists reported.
Heavy rainfall regularly leads to flooding and traffic chaos in Lebanon. Last November, a man died in Kesrouan when he was swept away by floodwaters.
