In the northern town of Zghorta, snow fell above 500 meters above sea level, forcing school closures in the area. Public and private schools were also closed in the northern district of Koura, where residents were unable to access gas stations to purchase heating oil.
Abdel-Rahman Hajj, the mayor of the Mishmish village of Akkar, said that snow covered all of Akkar Thursday, and snowplows could not clear roads because they were blocked by layers of ice and snow.
“Residents of these villages have no access to electricity, water, gas oil, and internal transportation is difficult,” Hajj said.
Hajj added that “there are four sick people in Wata Mishmish who are in critical condition and need dialysis.” He called on the Lebanese Army and Red Cross to help transfer these patients to nearby hospitals.
In north Lebanon’s Batroun and Tannourin, the storm damaged agricultural greenhouses, particularly in the Kfarhalda area of Batroun. In Tripoli, heavy winds and rain uprooted several trees and billboards, while causing a partial collapse of the famous “Allah” sign in Nour Square in south Tripoli. 
The city’s mayor, Nader Ghazal, visited the square and the municipality’s maintenance teams fixed the sign the same day.
In the south, water levels in the Hasbani River rose significantly as flooding affected orchards near the river, and damaged irrigation canals and agricultural support systems. 
In Sidon, residents complained that the heavy rains revealed shoddy work on infrastructure projects, with cracks appearing on several roads in the Sidon area. The city’s corniche also sustained slight damage, while further south, in Tyre, the balconies of two homes collapsed in the Raml neighborhood.
