We are fortunate here at Villas Andrea because we are on a hill. In our case the water from the open land flows down a storm drain alongside the road and we get very little down the road outside our house.
For whatever reason though, water does work its way into the pool box where the pump and filter are housed so I have taken the precaution of turning off the electrics to the box. I also took the opportunity to empty some of the water out of the pool yesterday otherwise we would be looking out at an infinity pool this morning.
If anything, today is set to be worse. Overnight there was a little rain but not enough to cause concern. Already this morning though, we have torrential rain and we have thunder and lightening. Time to batten down the hatches and watch a movie on the television.
AEMET has us on orange alert today reduced to yellow alert tomorrow.
