Independence celebrations under a wet blanket

Torrential rains hit the Maltese islands on Independence Day. This day usually hosts a number of celebrations to honour the landmark anniversary. Newsbook.com.mt is trying to contact the Department of Information to find out if the ceremonial activities will be cancelled due to the foul weather.

Meanwhile the Puttinu Cares activity organised by DHL Express will still be taking place.

Many pictures have been shared through social media depicting heavy grey clouds and the sudden downpour.
