SPAIN’S national state weather agency, AEMET, has issued a raft of yellow severe weather warnings for today (Friday) and tomorrow.

Many of the country’s tourist hotspots could see torrential rain and thunderstorms according to the information put out this morning.

The areas on alert can be found at the very bottom of the story below.

The new list of warnings comes just a day after parts of the historic town of Ronda, an hour inland from the Costa del Sol, was submerged by up to a metre of water by flash flooding.

Incredible videos of the shocking scenes immediately went viral (see link below).

Streets were left awash with water almost a metre deep in places as an estimated 45 litres per square metre fell in less than an hour.

Tables and chairs from cafes could be seen floating down the streets.

The mayor of the town, Teresa Valdenebro Ríos, blasted the Met Office for not issuing warnings until after the event.
