A BRITISH resident in Javea has returned home to find her garden ‘trashed’ by freak winds that toppled plant pots and ripped a hole in the roof.
Kimberley Harrison thought she had been ‘burgled’ when she arrived at her house in Cap Martí around 3pm today.
“Everything was thrown in different directions, things not even I can move,” Kimberley, 50, told the Olive Press.
“I’ve got a hole in the roof as the winds just ripped up a load of roof tiles and smashed them on the floor.
“It was only when I saw the hole I realised I hadn’t been burgled.”
It comes as hurricane warnings have been issued by weather watching group Proyecto Mastral – El Tiempo en Torrevieja.
Wind watching websites have also shown a hurricane appearing over Javea just before 11am today.
Winds picked up to nearly 60 km/h off the coast before the eye of the storm appeared to move towards the Balearics.
