This picture of a not so sunny beach resort called Mojacar was taken early this morning from Turre, after a cloudburst hit the region overnight.
According to reports from early morning people, car parks are four feet deep in water, basements are flooded, and La Parata was cut off after the rambla there filled with water, washing the road away.
I assume that the lack of vegetation in that area isn’t helping with the rain washoff.
Rain started at 4am and continued, heavily, all night. Police and Proteccion Civil units continue to assess the damage caused, and warn that we could expect more rain today. The area continues under a yellow alert for heavy rain. Hardly normal weather for mid-August, but it gives the tourists something to talk about.
