Between about four pm and nine, 20 litres per square metre of rain fell causing chaos on the roads making many in the area impassable.
Whenever it rains hard like that, there are terrible problems in Torrevieja which has prompted the council to once more apply to the Valencian Autonomous Government for work to commence on the system for draining rain water first applied for in 2007.
The picture shows the rain down by the SMILE dental clinic we go to. Last time they had heavy rain, the water was coming through the roof and running into the electric box, tripping it out. I hope they got the problem sorted before yesterday.
You can see on this satellite picture the heavy mass of cloud moving to the east away to be replaced by the much smaller anticyclone.
