The Mississippi river next to Tell es-Safi/Gath!

Oren Ackermann and his daughter Kerem, visited the tell today, to see if the torrential rains that we’ve had in the last few days throughout Israel had affected the site.

Oh boy – did they ever! See here a picture and a great clip that Oren took of the Elah Valley river bed, which runs just to the north of the lower city of the tell, after the rains – and how it has turned into the Mississippi (well, sort of…), for a short time…

Here’s the clip, followed by a nice picture:
