Sea of Galilee water level lowest in centuryThe lake where Christians believe Jesus walked on water has declined to its lowest level in a hundred years, an Israeli official said Tuesday. The Sea of Galilee, which is actually a lake, has suffered from four consecutive years of rain shortages, Amir Givati of Israel’s Water Authority told military radio. The rest of Israel is spared from shortages thanks to five seawater desalination plants built along the Mediterranean coast.
