More about the rain

Ask three people from different locations in the Vega Baja what the weather was like yesterday and you will get three different answers.The unstable air continues to drop rainstorms on towns almost at random.

For example, we were in Torrevieja yesterday lunchtime on business and it was sunny, there were even people on the beach. We called at Carrefour and Mercadona on our return and it was still sunny. However, it was obvious there had been some rain in Bigastro which had cleared by the time we got home.

This morning I read that towns in the north of the province had up to 60 litres of water per square metre in the morning and that there were floods on the roads of Torrevieja in the afternoon. It seems that the police in the town are so well prepared, they close the roads they know will flood even before it happens. Torrevieja has had twice the amount of rain in a few days than it had all year and there is still more to come.
