SPLASHING TIME: Body boarding in the streets yesterday (Thursday)


MANY of Spain’s most popular Costas and holiday island hotspots are on orange severe weather alerts today (Friday) and tomorrow.

The national state weather agency, AEMET, is forecasting some of the worst weather with hit the Brit-favourite resort of Benidorm on the Costa Blanca,  and the party islands of Ibiza and Mallorca in the Balearics.

Yesterday in Andalucia the emergency services responded to more than 100 rain-related incidents, mainly flooding, in a two-hour period during the afternoon in Sevilla that saw 50 roads closed. Hailstorms also pounded many areas.

Meanwhile the Costa del Sol didn’t quite live up to its name either and one happy man was filmed under a giant parasol singing in the rain.

The latest upgraded warnings for torrential rain, thunderstorms, strong winds and high coastal waters come the day after rain forced the cancellation many of the traditional huge Spanish Semana Santa parades yesterday.

These are the following areas are under severe weather alerts for the next two days:

GOOD FRIDAY
