The footage also shows the extent of the floods in Spinola, with cars parked near the roundabout half-submerged.
Sharing the footage, the Malta police force praised its officers who were involved in today’s rescue operations, as well as civil protection and armed forces officials.
Malta’s streets were plunged into chaos this morning as a violent storm hit the island, with the Met Office issuing an Orange weather warning.
Floods forced the closure of several streets and some cars were left submerged.
