Heavens open bringing torrential rains to Cyprus

After a morning of sunshine across Cyprus, the heavens opened on Saturday afternoon bringing thunder, and heavy showers.

Torrential rains have made driving difficult on the Larnaca – Kofinou and Kofinou – Limassol highways, according to police.

There is an accumulation of water on the tarmac and visibility is limited.

Police urge drivers to keep at low speeds, stay a safe distance from vehicles in front and keep their vehicle’s headlights on.

The showers top off a week of unpleasant weather which has seen the island battered by storms, some heavy.
