Autumn’s first rains spread chaos on Lebanese roads on Saturday as a heavy downpour caused bumper-to-bumper traffic blocking drivers in their vehicles.

All entrances to Beirut were blocked as drivers waited for hours to reach their destinations.

Every year, heavy rains in September and October disrupt traffic following several months of dry weather.
