IDF radio is reporting that Haifa got hit this morning again, at least 8 dead and at least 20 wounded. 13 rockets landed, and there was a siren ahead of time. Besides the fact that Haifa has never been hit before (which shows how much farther the new rockets can reach) people are upset because the people in Haifa are not used to this, and don't really have themselves organized for this type of attack. Yes, there are bomb shelters- but they haven't been stocked as well as they could be. Also, the people don't stay in the shelters - they don't take the warnings seriously enough.
The commentators are discussing why Hizbollah have launched the rockets only during the day and not at night. They think that it might be because the terrorist think it would be easier to pinpoint where the rockets are being launched from at night.
They are now talking to a Magen David Adom person for an update, and suddenly he yells that there are more rockets falling and the phone goes dead. This is a nightmare in broad daylight.
Update - 9:53 am Israel time: The announcer says that the phones are out in Haifa because of a rocket hit. If you are trying to call someone and not getting through, do not assume the worst.
Update - 10:15 am Israel time: Bezek says that the phones are not out because anything was hit, but because of all of the people calling. Patience, and you will get through. A more serious problem - people who heard the shriek of the rockets stopped their cars and ran for shelter (which is the right thing to do). But now these cars are blocking the roads that the ambulances need to travel to get to the hospitals. People, go home if you aren't there already, park your cars, and get into the shelters.
Update - 11:20 am Israel time: More rockets reported falling in Haifa and Nahariya.
