SEVERE weather warnings remain in place across the Malaga province after a weekend of heavy rain and thunderstorms.
The alert affects the Costa del Sol, the Guadalhorce Valley and the Axarquia.
Malaga city centre was hit particularly hard on Saturday with many flooded streets around the El Corte Ingles department store. Many traffic lights were out of order causing major delays on some roads.
The 112 emergency service reported that they attended over three hundred incidents in Malaga in a five-hour period, mainly in the capital, due to the downpour.
Flooding of houses, garages, and basements and problems on the road network were the main reason for alerting the emergency services.
So far some 30 families have had to be evacuated from their homes in the province.
There have been no reports of personal injury.
