Storms causing problems throughout Andalucia

The rains of the weekend have been causing problems throughout Andalucia and especially in Jaén and Córdoba where there is concern about the high level of the rio Guadalquivir.

Many homes, shops and garages have been flooded over the weekend, 10,000 people in Sevilla were without power and a 15 metre tree fell onto the dining room of the José Luis Sánchez school in San Martín del Tesorillo, Cádiz.

There is much flooding in Linares and Baeza and in the town of El Carpio, Córdoba, the rio Guadalquivir is currently flowing at 1,300 cubic metres per second, which represents a sixfold increase in volume.

Elsewhere the river has tripled in volume and is in danger of overflowing in a number of areas.

High winds have also caused extensive damage to a number of buildings under construction in Sevilla, particularly in Mairena del Alcor and Viso.
