Lebanon on Saturday began to survey the damages caused by the 2-day storm that buried villages across the country under thick layers of snow and wreaked havoc on the country's weak infrastructure.The morning icy roads led to several traffic accidents, including a collision between a van and a car near Qobeiyat, north Lebanon, injuring 10 people.In the village of Khraibet al-Jundi, north of Tripoli, two families were briefly trapped when support walls collapsed Friday night due to the heavy rain, blocking the entrances to their two-story house. Public Works Minister Ghazi Zeater visited Saturday the village of Mtaileb in the Metn district, where a major wall on the main road had also collapsed at night because of the storm.Residents of Draib al-Awsat area in Akkar asked authorities to repair electricity networks damaged during the storm, complaining that they were only receiving about 45 minutes of electricity each day.
