STORM ravaged communities are to receive extra help after being battered by the `Gota fria´.
The Diputación de Málaga has offered its services to assist with clean-up process after torrential rain, tornados and hail battered the areas of Campillos and Sierra de Yeguas on Monday.
Videos online showed the large tornado, a rarity in Spain, carving a path through the Campillos countryside. Once the storm had subsided the full scale of the damage could be seen.
Multiple farm buildings had been destroyed and dozens of livestock had been killed due to falling debris.
The fourth vice-president of the Diputación de Málaga, Natacha Rivas, and the deputy of Security and Emergencies, Manuel Marmolejo, visited the two localities on Wednesday to see some of the worst affected areas.
In Campillos, Rivas and Marmolejo have offered the municipality the use of fire trucks and personnel to assist with the debris clearing and to help get the area back to normal as quickly as possible.
And in Sierra de Yeguas, the vice-president and the deputy have met with the first deputy mayor of the town, Maria del Carmen Gonzalez, to convey the support of the town to help repair the storm damage.
