Snowstorm Zina is wreaking havoc around Lebanon, delaying flights and closing off roads in the mountains, not to mention making life unbearable for the over a million Syrian refugees living in tents in the country's north and northeast.The Lebanese Agricultural Research Institute, which tracks such storms, said there were significant temperature drops Wednesday with torrential rain and snow above 500 meters altitude at night, along with strong winds.While the storm is not unusual, Farajalla said it was not possible to determine how often such violent storms recur because the data on rain, temperature, wind speed, humidity and other atmospheric measurements have not been collected over large periods of time accurately enough, though he estimates this current storm is likely a once in a quarter-century event.
