THESE  photos show the latest extent of the flood devastation on the Costa del Sol.

Sabinillas, Marbella and Estepona are just some of the communities hit hard by an over 200 litre downpour in less than 24 hours.

Thought to be the worst floods in the area since 1989, they tragically claimed the life of a 26-year-old woman earlier today.

  1. Thankyou Olivepress. I live in Cancelada close to where the young lady died yesterday. I was also having a problem trying to get home, abandoned my car & got home on foot with my dogs, I would have passed this lady…. very sad. I have put out my number on FB if anyone in my area needs help I can get to them on foot. No getting in the car today.
