We could hear the thunder in the distance yesterday and just knew that someone was in for a soaking.
It turned out to be Benidorm where 27.4 litres pre square meter fell in just 80 minutes. The downpour flooded 100 shops and restaurants, trapped vehicles and closed several roads. The water running down to Levante beach carved canyons in the sand filling them with mud and dirt.
Several other parts of the region also had rain but nowhere near as intense as Bendorm. Here we had a few spots and that was it.
Now that the unsettled weather has past by, we can expect some decent sunshine for the rest of the week.
