AS Andalucia is placed under a dangerous red alert severe flooding, thunderstorms and torrential rain have left Andalucian towns almost engulfed in water.
Shocking videos of streets submerged in water have been shared on social media showing the extent of the destruction wrought by the torrential rain.
Estepona port is currently engulfed in metres-deep water.
Campillos has faced some of the worst flooding to hit Malaga, which have already tragically claimed the life of a firefighter.

Some locals have taken to social media to express their frustration at the delay in issuing a red alert.
‘AEMET can you explain how it helps putting out a red alert when 120 litres of water have already fallen in half an hour? Campillos is like this right now. Thank you.’
