The Spanish Government has approved €5.4 million in subsidies for damage caused by the floods in October 2018 in Malaga province. Four days of incessant rain saw Campillo, Teba and other inland municipalities suffer the biggest deluge in the history of Malaga.
The money was granted after Malaga was declared as an area affected by a catastrophe in 2018. This decision was taken after hundreds of protesters from the affected areas requested a government response.
The total comes to €5,466,446, just over half of the €11.1 million figure requested by the different local administrations. The State rejected part of the demanded funds in each application, a common occurrence in the granting of this type of aid. Malaga’s Provincial Government will receive €4.4 million -with most of the money being destined for road repairs- and Campillos will be granted a further €348,000 to repair part of the damaged infrastructures.
