SNOW, heavy rainfall and howling winds continue to hit the country with Extremadura, Andalusia and the Canary Islands seeing some of the worst weather.

Málaga and Granada have been expected to prepare for rainfall of up to 30 litres per sq/m  an hour, with winds expecting to reach 90 km/h.

An alert has also been issued for rough sea conditions on the coasts of Andalusia, Canary Islands and the Catalan area of Ampurdán.

Transport has been heavily affected by the storm with railway operator Renfe telling customers to expect delays due to a build up of ice and snow on the tracks.

Several flights have been cancelled to and from Lanzarote and Bilbao following on from yesterday’s Ryanair cancellations of all flights to Spain from three UK airports.

Around 300 roads have been affected, with emergency services in Galicia alone reporting around 60 incidents.

Currently 48 people are believed to have been killed by the ‘Beast from the East’.
