"Cuando llueve en Torrevieja saco mi equipo de buceo" - when it rains in Torrevieja, I need my diving gear is a group on Facebook with 500 members.
Just looking at these pictures from the newspaper Información and you can see what they mean. Every time it rains hard, parts of the town get flooded out.
There are of course "black spots" where the problem is at its worst. Living near one of those must be a nightmare.
Plans were set out to alleviate this situation in 2007 but as yet, nothing has been done so every time it rains we get these pictures.
