Event

Flash flooding in southeastern areas of Spain has left six people dead as of Monday, September 16, while an estimated 3500 people are reportedly still missing. Though storms and rains have eased as of September 16, lingering transportation and business disruptions are possible in affected areas over the coming hours and days.

Context

Torrential rains have affected the southeastern region of Spain since September 11, causing several road closures in Valencia, Alicante, Murcia, Almería, and the Balearic Islands, while prompting flight disruptions at Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI), Ibiza Airport (IBZ), Alicante Airport (ALC), and Almería Airport (LEI) over the weekend.

Advice

Individuals in the affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports, anticipate power, telecommunication, and transportation disruptions, including adverse driving conditions and road closures, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities. Remember that running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) is enough to knock over an adult.
