Rain, Wind & More Rain

GRA Storm Damage 22NV19Whilst Salobreña has suffered its tradition flooding at the top of town, the provincial capital and province have also had their problems.

The emergency number 112 has had to deal with around 20 storm-related incidents around the province, three of which occurred in the city of Granada where large trees have either come down or lost boughs.

One of them came down across the road that leads up to Sierra Nevada, requiring one lane to be closed to traffic whilst the branches were removed. Not fun on the very weekend the Sierra Nevada Skiing Resort opens!

Another one came down in a central park but fortunately nobody was injured. In fact the only material damage was to a lamppost.

Down in Motril another tree lost several branches, as was the case in Dúdar, and of course the fire services have been out clearing rain drains.

Yet, the rain generally has been very welcome as it has been spread out during the whole of Friday, falling at a pace that the parched earth can easily soak up.
