Cairo gets snow after a century

  • Something wonderful happened in Cairo: It saw snow after over a hundred years. 

    "It's the first time in my life that I have seen it like this," a resident said.

    Although, people are thoroughly enjoying the sight, the region-wide snow storm is causing issues elsewhere. For instance, Syrian refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan weren't made to withstand such a weather. Moreover power was knocked out and road were closed in Jerusalem. 

    "We are expecting a second storm triple the size of the one we've seen now," a municipality spokesman said.
