WE might be blessed with some of the best weather in the world – but the recent floods have certainly knocked us for six.
For a dozen people to die in the space of a day is, quite simply, shocking; particularly coming so soon after the Malaga fires which damaged 224 homes just a month ago.
It is terrifying to think that cars were swept away and cattle were killed with nobody given enough time to get out and find safety.
Our hearts go out to all those killed, in particular the 52-year-old British expat Diana Duda who was found in a lagoon near her home in Vera.
As with the fires, the floods have been devastating.
But if the response from the army of expat volunteers to the fires is anything to go by, the region’s recovery from the floods is in good hands.
