WATCH: Man in kayak sails through flooded Estepona streets as rain ravages Costa del Sol

RAPIDS: A man kayaks in a flooded Estepona street


SOME saw the funny side of the floods in Estepona this morning by using a kayak to navigate the biblical floods that have descended on the Costa del Sol.

Images show a man in a yellow kayak sailing through the streets as onlookers huddle together in the nearby flooded cafes.

Torrential rain this morning has forced the Spanish state’s meteorology agency AEMET to place Malaga province on red alert, meaning there is an ‘extreme risk’.

About 80mm of rain is falling an hour in the area and businesses are forced to close their doors as waterlogged streets overwhelm doorways.

The floods are now making it dangerous to drive, as in some places there is over a foot of water and authorities are urging people not to make trips unless absolutely necessary.
