Many flood chasers always dream of seeing a "first wave", when they come flood hunting.
Travelers who came this morning (Monday) especially to Nahal Heber in the Judean Desert, among them Matan Bogomolski from the Nature and Parks Authority, were treated to the exciting sight where rainwater that fell in the Jerusalem mountains and also in the desert itself, quickly flowed into Nahal Heber and eventually spilled into the Dead Sea.
As I recall, about six months ago, in November 2022, we brought a record of the Hever River in a spectacular flood that reached the Hever waterfall from which the water fell from a height of more than a hundred meters.
Nahal Heber is 17 km long and it contains several bodies of water that fill up and end in a series of waterfalls, the highest of which, as mentioned, falls to a depth of more than a hundred meters.
