FOOTAGE of a spectacular waterfall cascading 'onto a road in southern Spain' has emerged online as storms continue to lash the country. But the video is not what it seems!

Several news outlets claim the video was shot in the town of Grazalema, in Cadiz, which has had an estimated 600 litres per square metre of rainfall since Friday (March 2), making it the wettest region in Spain according to state weather agency Aemet.

But the actual video was filmed in Gran Canaria on an unknown date.

Clive Muir from Turismo Grazalema told the Euro Weekly News, "Yep, that is the Canarias. I wish people would take more care before they post stuff."

Reservoirs in the province have risen by 10 per cent since the storms hit Andalucia, with the Arcos reservoir now at 90 per cent capacity.

Many parts of the country remain on yellow and orange alert for rain and strong winds.
