Spain – Southeast Spain saw a record amount of rain on Monday, causing riverbeds to overflow and roads to flood as the region faced its worst floods in 20 years. Half of the average annual rainfall fell in Alicante in just one day as more than 150litres of water per square metre hit the area. At least one man had to be rescued from his vehicle after it became submerged in floodwaters when it was swept away into the Serpis River. Schools across the province shut down for the day as Spain’s weather agency said the stormy weather was expected to continue through Tuesday.
