ASSESSMENT: Officials toured the town to determine the extent of the damages caused by the torrential rains.
CARTAMA was given a post-storm overview by a representative of the regional government to assess rain damage. The neighbourhood of Doña Ana was visited by representative Jose Ruiz, who was joined by the Education delegate Patricia Alba, mayor Jorge Gallardo and local councillors.
The neighbourhood was badly affected by the overflowing of Guadalhorce river, flooding homes, streets and orchards. The emergency military unit carried out cleaning works on Friday evening.
Official data report that at times it rained up to 70 litres per square metre in the area. Some of the measures taken that day included stopping traffic in the Cartama station road, draining the subway railway crossing and evacuating school centres.
