SPAIN’S government has declared areas of Malaga, Sevilla and Cadiz as disaster zones following last month’s flash floods.
According to the Insurance Compensation Consortium, there is set to be more than 5,200 claims spread across Malaga alone, with more than €32 million in damages inflicted upon the province.
The declaration means there will be ‘targeted aid’ from Madrid for the areas affected by the floods, in particular in Teba, Campillos, Ronda and Estepona.
The payouts will be exempt from tax.
The Vice President of the Government, Carmen Calvo, voiced solidarity and underlined the support and the responsibility of the Government ‘in these circumstances’.
