An elderly woman was rescued by the fire services after she fell into a three-metre deep pit in the yard of her house in Kokkinotrimithia on Sunday afternoon.
The pit, in which greywater collected, was covered with concrete but due to heavy rain the surface collapsed when the 91-year-old woman crossed the yard.
She was then taken to hospital with injuries, where she remains.
Because of the rainy weather over the weekend the fire services responded to 88 calls for help. In 18 cases they pumped rainwater from flooded basements, and they also dealt with fallen trees and objects which were swept away due to strong winds.
