Woah! Here’s a look at the best shots from last night’s electric storm
It was nothing short of scary!

We’ve been receiving warnings of a freak storm all week and boy did the Gods deliver last night. Usually, it is fireworks that are lighting up our summer night skies, but yesterday’s visual spectacle was equally breathtaking.

Rainfall averaged around 11mm across both islands, with Xaghra (Gozo) and Valletta (Malta) amongst the worst hit, clocking 24.6mm and 13.8mm respectively.

September is overall a flaky month when it comes to predicting Maltese weather. It is generally the time of the year where the four seasons have a month-long reunion, resulting in unpredictable (and sometimes freak) turns to the weather.

Luckily, this thunderstorm doesn’t mean summer’s over and it looks like warm and sunny weather is still on the menu for a good chunk of September. What a relief!

The term ‘drag queen’ is pretty well known (thank you Ru Paul’s drag race!) but how about ‘drag king’? Well, it’s about to get a whole lot more popular as Malta welcomes award-winning show Joan!
