SOME 1,500 people have been evacuated from a campsite in Crevillente in Alicante in the early hours of this morning, Sunday, due to rising floodwater.

The Guardia Civil, local Mayor Jose Manuel Penalva and the campsite owner took the decision to move campers in an orderly, controlled way just after midnight after water began to enter the site.

Some of the campers have been provisionally put up in local sports centres.


The campsite is one of the biggest on the Costa Blanca, located close to the AP-7 and just a few kilometres from Almoradi, one of the worst affected areas by this week’s extreme weather.
