A FORECAST huge storm has left some towns in the south of Spain under one metre (3ft) of water as market stall holders watched in horror as their goods were washed away down the streets yesterday (Friday).

AEMET, the Spanish Met Office, had issued red, orange and yellow severe weather warning alerts, mainly for torrential rain on the eastern coast of the country, but the ferocity of the downpours still shocked everyone.
Particularly badly hit was Garrucha in Almeria where torrents of water although Antas and Albox were also hit.
The Met Office said the line of the storm was narrow and located around the mountains to the northwest of Vera.
At its peak 213mm of rainfall was recorded in one hour in Garrucha.
Fruit stall holders watched helplessly as their produce was carried away in the torrent of water.
Despite the spectacular images that were captured there are no reports of injuries in the flash floods.
