Floods in Zaragoza

The river Ebro has risen to six metres and ten centimetres in Zaragoza, with flooding necessitating the evacuation of around one thousand people from their homes.

Everything is apparently in place to evacuate 2,500 people from the town of Pina del Ebro although the order to evacuate has been delayed after the rise of the river was brought under control. The situation is expected to be reviewed at 13:00 today.

The river rose to over six metres on Sunday, with the water flowing at 2,542 cubic metres per second. According to forecasts by the Confederación Hidrográfica del Ebro (CHE), the levels continue to grow.
