EMERGENCY services in the south of Spain had a busy time yesterday evening (Thursday) as a summer thunderstorm and heavy rain led to a deluge of calls.
The 112 Andalucia emergency control centre averaged a call every three minutes between 5pm and 6.30pm for cases of flooding of homes, garages, commercial premises and falling trees and branches in the province of Granada.
A sinkhole also opened up in one road.
The town of Alfacar was worst hit but similar incidents were reported in Huetor-Santillan, Nivar, Güevejar, Albolote, Viznar and Peligros.
On the roads, the emergency and maintenance services were kept busy pumping out flooded roads especially on the A-44A, at km 121 at Peligros, as well as on the A-92 as it passes through Pulianas.
Falling rocks also had to be cleared from the GR-3424 the A-92 motorway in Huetor-Santillan according to the Guardia Civil.
