HEAVY rain has caused Jerez to come to a standstill with the motorway, train station and airport shut.

Between Lebrija and Jerez train tracks are flooded and the AP-4 toll road is flooded at the 80km point.

Train services between Sevilla and Córdoba are suspended on the conventional line but the AVE high speed line is open.

Cutting the access to the terminal the rain forced Jerez airport to close last night.

The airport’s basement flooded and the electrical installations it houses have been turned off.

The runway is hoped to be open this afternoon with 24 flights, 12 arrivals and 12 departures scheduled today.
