A new wave of rain hit the cities and villages of Kafr El-Sheikh in North Delta forcing the governorate to close the Burullus and Rashid sea ports on Monday.

Fishing and sailing activities have also been suspended temporarily by the authorities in Burullus Lake and the Mediterranean as well in Rashid after the increase in the sea level and the speed of wind.

In Kafr El-Sheikh governorate heavy rain spoiled the parliamentary election campaigns in the street prepared by the candidates for the runoffs that will be held on Tuesday, according to Ahram Arabic news website  

The Egyptian Meteorological Authority warned that the rain wave hitting the north of the country would continue on Tuesday.
