As of Monday, July 8, 13 communities have been placed under orange alert due to heavy rains and storms, with the possibility of hail and strong wind gusts. Burgos, Castilla, Cuenca, Castilla la Mancha, Leon, Ourense, Palencia, Rioja, Soria, Teruel, Valencia, Valladolid, and Zamora are all under an orange alert. Most areas are under orange alert for the day, though others are affected through Tuesday, July 9.
Heavy rains, strong winds, and associated disruptions, including road closures, and train and flight delays and cancelations are possible. Residual disruptions to transportation are possible in the coming days.
Individuals in the affected areas are advised to monitor developments, prepare for residual disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
