GOVERNMENT aid has been approved to help flood-wrecked communities.
Ministers voted to give financial support to ’emergency zones’ in Malaga, Cadiz and Huelva, which were hit by deluges that left two people dead.
According to a government document, individual flood victims will be able to claim financial support alongside regional governments and businesses.
It has pledged to pay in between 50 to 100% costs to repair property damage up to a maximum of €10,320 and a maximum of €15,120 for a home irreparably damaged.
Up to €2,580 may be available to cover damage to belongings.
Flood victims will also get tax breaks and Seguridad Social discounts.
Businesses including farms can claim up to €8,000 each, while expenses incurred through emergency service callouts will be covered.
Regions in other parts of the country that were also hit by floods, such as Castellón, Valencia, Alicante and Badajoz have been offered the same help.
The total amount of aid that will be given out is not yet known, as regional governments have not yet submitted damage estimates.
