“My thanks to the King for calling personally”, it read after the civic authorities had spent the day trying to prioritise the use of emergency services across the rain-hit province.


The King also spoke to Susana Diaz, the president of the Andalucian government and was told about the impact of the floods in terms of the number of people evacuated from their homes and the damage to homes and businesses.

He was said to have offered his condolences to the family of the 26-year-old woman who drowned in Estepona.

The King also spoke to the mayors of Cartama, Estepona and Marbella who have been organising efforts to tackle the impact of the heavy rain.
