Although rain fell steadily throughout Tuesday morning in many parts of the Region of Murcia the EWN exclusive source at the MET centre appeared to have got it right again in predicting that this latest spell of rain would be far less significant than the one which caused widespread flooding in mid-September.
As of midday the heaviest of the rain as reported by Aemet to have been in La Manga del Mar Menor, where 36.6 millimetres had been recorded by 12.00, while elsewhere the totals had reached 35 mm in Puerto Lumbreras and 33.6 mm in Mula at 15.00, 32.4 millimetres in Calasparra at 13.00 and 30.6 mm in Caravaca de la Cruz at 15.10mm The rainfall was very even throughout the Region, with other figures reported including 28 mm in Cartagena, 27.2 mm in Águilas, 20.2 mm in Murcia, 23.2 mm in Torre Pacheco and 20.6 mm in Mazarrón.
Exactly the conditions and rain level predications our exclusive EWN Met centre contact forecast yesterday. The lack of flooding was a large relief to residents across Costa Blanca after September’s devastations.
Mrs Watkins-Palmer took the time to call the EWN this morning to say ” oh I’m so grateful to your weather source, he really did relieve my fears, I had read elsewhere of massive storms coming again which were obviously a total exaggeration, thankfully your man knew different and I will always take his advice in future -Thank you EWN”
