The rain in Spain does not stay mainly on the plains!


With the Easter holidays just around the corner, there are concerns about the condition of the beaches.

The recent rainstorms, gale force winds and high tides have damaged foundations of beach bars, damaged sewage and water pipes as well as scouring the sand away from the beach. In Malaga province the beaches at Huelin, los Baños del Carmen and Guadalmar have been affected, as well as Marbella and Torrox.

In Huelva the fishing fleet has had to stay in the harbour and there are concerns over the strawberry harvest.

In Cadiz province there have been two serious landslides and in Jerez the facade of a building collapsed and a roof was blown off another house. 

A stream near the town of Carmona, Seville, was so swollen that 10 families have been left without power for the last two days and as they live in a rural area the council has not been able to reach them to help.

Looking on the bright side ,some of the reservoirs are now up to 85 per cent capacity. With more rain expected draining will have to begin soon.
