Event

Heavy rainfall that hit Algiers on the evening (local time) of Thursday, September 12, has caused significant transportation disruptions across the capital as of Friday, September 13. The rains have produced flooding in some parts of the city with over 4 cm (1.5 in) of rain recorded; low-lying areas of the city have been the most seriously affected by the rainfall. A flash flood reportedly submerged several subway stations as well as parts of Houari Boumediene Airport (ALG). Some subway stations and tram lines remained closed as of Friday morning.
