Rain claims lives

By Nicola Cowell

HEAVY rain in Andalucia killed three people after the region was placed on storm alert yesterday.

A couple died in Aguilar de la Frontera when their car was washed away by flash floods close to Lake Zonar.

In Bujulance, east of Cordoba, a 36-year-old man was killed when a wall of his home collapsed on top of him, while two others were injured in a similar incident in Aguilar.

The rainfall yesterday, which measured as much as 120 litres per square metre, left Malaga and Granada on orange storm alert.

Emergency services received more than 200 reports of damage and accidents caused by the freak weather.
