Dramatic storm pics and videos: Six dead and 300,000 ha (741,000 acres) of prime agricultural land destroyed after the worst storm in 140 years hit Spain. Authorities describe it as the worst storm since 1879 when floodwaters killed over 1000 in Murcia and Orihuela. The worst-hit provinces included Valencia, Alicante, Murcia, Albacete, Almeria, and Malaga.
Ontinyent, Orihuela, and Moixent experienced swelling of rivers leading to raging floods after 250 mm (9.8 inches) of rain fell in 12 hours on top of days of heavy rain. This is 10 times the normal amount for the time of the year.
So far, over 3500 people have been evacuated, including approximately 2 000 locals from Santomera town in Murcia.
The worst affected was the municipality of Orihuela, Alicante where 75,000 residents remained isolated for three days.

Introducing little Evie: Evie was found in the street at only a few weeks old. Luckily for her she was rescued and is now in a foster home. She is a super friendly tabby. She is growing more and more confident by the day and is thriving well. Her current fosterer can only keep her for two more weeks so it would be lovely if this dear kitty could find a forever home. Time is running out. Please contact Julia/Torre del Mar on +34684212886 also on watsap
