IN PICS AND VIDEO: The rain in Spain doesn’t go down the drains!

SEVERE weather warnings for Spain materialised yesterday (Friday) for many parts of Spain flooding social media with some incredible footage.

Thunderstorms and heavy rain left many areas knee-deep in water and bemused tourists who ‘only came here for sunny weather’.

One of the worst hit areas was Alicante and the Costa Blanca.

Some incredible scenes captured by people on their mobile phones in the Spanish holiday hotspot.

Jack Rodgers shared a frightening video of two workers caught in the storm on the top floor of a high-rise building running around, apparently with no safety gear.
