A brief recap of yesterday’s storm… and what’s coming

Malta was battered by heavy rain, Force 9 winds and even some damage inducing flooding over the weekend. 

As many found shelter indoors, others managed to get a snippet of what the storm hailing from the northeast was doing to the islands. 

Boats in Marsascala were filmed being pulled to shore whilst others recorded scenes of cars ploughing through depths of water and rain.

The worst of the storm was registered in the afternoon between 1400 and 1700hrs, with the forecast resulting in an orange warning by the Malta International Airport weather reporting facility. 

And this could be the beginning of a pattern for this week as similar forecasts have been issued for the rest of the week. This week is set to colder and wetter than usual, with moderate winds and possible isolated rain throughout out.

Roberta Metsola meets U2's Bono for a good cause

The President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola has recently launched the ‘Generators of Hope’ campaign to help Ukraine with power generators in yet another push by the Maltese MEP and the EU, to help those suffering from the war.

Posting on her socials, Roberta Metsola described U2’s Bono as “the man who first shook the world in concerts and then into action.” She explained that Bono is a global campaigner for the newly established #GeneratorsofHope initiative for Ukraine.

The campaign calls on cities to donate power generators and transformers to help Ukrainians get through the harsh winter ahead.

These generators will help to keep essential facilities in the country running, providing energy to hospitals, schools, water supply facilities, relief centres, shelters, phone masts and more.

As a result of Russia’s war against Ukraine more than half of Ukraine’s electricity network has been damaged or destroyed, leaving millions of Ukrainians without electricity.

Storm hitting Malta on Tuesday to be even bigger than last weekend's

It seems that Sunday will not be the last time Malta will have to endure stormy weather conditions, with local weather page ‘Aġġornament tat-Temp’ forecasting an even bigger storm on Tuesday.

On Sunday, the Maltese Islands were hit with a spell of strong winds, particularly between 1pm and 6.30pm, with the strongest wind being registered at gale force 9.

Today’s chance of rain currently stands at 45% with an even bigger storm expected to sweep the Maltese Islands on Tuesday as a cold front continues to hit the country. Temperatures are expected to reach highs 17°C and lows of 13°C.

Meanwhile, another weather page ‘It-Temp Madwarna’ has suggested that today will be relatively clear, with a storm to hit the country late at night as chance of rain stands at 80%.

Malta’s Meteorological Office has corroborated such claims, with reports of ‘Mainly Cloudy‘ weather on Monday and ‘Thundery Showers‘ on Tuesday.

Are you ready for this weather?

In a heartfelt video, 25-year-old Cheyenne explained how last year she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Unfortunately, despite going through numerous operations and treatments, the cancer had continued to spread. 

As Cheyenne continued to courageously battle the disease, she came up with the company e.lementi to keep her motivated and work on her dreams. 

Due to the expenses associated with the treatment, Cheyenne said that she and her family could not have undergone it all without the aid of the Malta Community Chestfund. Now, as Istrina rolls around, Cheyenne wishes to give back to those who helped her face this massive challenge. 

Speaking to Malta Daily, Cheyenne said: “e.lementi for Istrina is all about giving back. Since e.lementi was developed and created during my stay in hospital, it motivated me to create such a fundraiser to help out and contribute in aid of the Malta Community Chest Fund.”

If you wish to donate and follow Cheyenne’s story, donations are open from today 27th November till the 25th of December.
Donations can be sent either by Revolut or BOV on +35699837246.
