After a huge downpour yesterday in Ronda with 50 litres of water falling in less than an hour, another hit Sentinel de Bodegas with a massive 40 litres in only 20 minutes.

Flash flood warnings on a yellow alert have been issued today across the region with potential torrential rain and thunderstorms forecast for this weekend.

It has been announced that the extreme weather is due to effects from the tropical storm Helene, bearing down across the Atlantic and sending strong winds towards Europe.
