Clearing up after the Javea floods

The local authorities have done a wonderful job clearing up after the fierce storms that left many parts of Javea underwater and flooded the Arenal.

Emergency services dealt with numerous incidents of flooding in streets and houses, walls which collapsed and cars which had become trapped in the rising waters. Citizens were warned that the Red Alert situation called for extreme caution; and were urged not to venture out unless absolutely necessary and collaborate with the security services when required to do so. The Cruz Roja established a reception area at Portal del Clot.
MeteoXabia reported that 267 litres of rainfall was recorded by the weather station in Xàbia Històrica up until midnight Sunday, making it the greatest amount of precipitation on one day during spring since records began and the greatest amount since the tragic storm and floods of 1957.
