SPANISH weather agency Aemet has placed the entire Costa del Sol on ‘orange alert’ for waves until 6:00pm today.
Many areas will see waves of between three and five metres, but Malaga Port was battered by six-metre waves this morning.
Gibraltar also saw five metre waves hit its coastline.
After 6:00pm today, a yellow warning will remain in place for all of the Costa del Sol on Thursday and Friday.
The paseo at Malaga’s San Andres beach has been flooded and yesterday around 250 boats stopped fishing due to the coastal phenomena.
Yesterday the ship ‘Ciudad Autonoma Melilla’ did not run its 3:00pm service from Malaga to Melilla or the return journey at 11:59pm.
The highest ever waves of the region were recorded at 8.5 metres in 1995.
