With a wind that was gusting at 60kmph, the local fire crews and police were kept busy yesterday morning.
- Police had to cordon off the area around the Colegio Santo Domingo in Orihuela so that council workers could remove two palm trees that had collapsed.
- Elsewhere the services were kept busy attending to cornices, roofs, lights and power lines that had blown down.
- In Molins, the wind tore off the tin roof of a house and deposited in the yard of a house 50 metres away -nobody was injured.
- Fallen trees also blocked roads and caused delays including the road from Bigastro to Molins, the N-340 and the N-332.
By the afternoon, the wind had started to calm down and today there is just a light breeze blowing.
