A night of heavy rainfall has proven too much for some areas in Malta with one bank having to close its doors temporarily due to flooding.
Bank of Valletta at St Paul’s Bay is currently undergoing urgent works due to flooding caused by the downpour that occurred throughout the night.
And while you might not be able to open a new savings account, you’ll still be able to withdraw money with the ATM still being open…
“The branch will remain closed until further notice for the safety of customers and staff. We apologise for any inconvenience and assure our customers that we are working hard to have the Branch open as soon as possible,” the bank said on Facebook.
This isn’t the first time the branch has flooded either, with it having to shut its doors last November for the same reason.
While today and tomorrow are forecasted to rain, the rest of the week looks pretty delightful with sunny days ahead of us and highs of 28°C.
On the other hand, you know we’re hitting the colder months when the temperature is predicted to drop to a low of 16°C this Thursday… perfect jumper weather.
It’s not just the weather you should keep an eye on this week.
Unfortunately for BOV, several branches have temporarily closed after staff members tested positive for COVID-19.
Specifically, Żabbar, Gżira, Marsa and Qormi are also closed while the Ħamrun branch is offering limited services at the moment.
So make sure you dress properly and plan your bank visits accordingly!
