SEVERAL regions across north and eastern Spain have been placed on alert for strong winds and rough seas. 

It comes as Storm Amelie has been leaving its mark on the country, causing winds of up to 70km/hr in the south over the weekend.

Now some 14 regions are being warned of dangerous conditions, with waves expected to reach between five and six metres high, according to weather agency AEMET.

The orange warning has been issued for all regions in Cantabria, Asturias, the Basque Country and Galicia.

Meanwhile the coasts of Catalunya, Murcia, Valencia and the Balearic Islands are on a yellow alert for waves up to three metres.

Andalucia (Granada, Jaen, Almeria), Aragon, Castilla-La Mancha, Castilla y Leon, Madrid and La Rioja are also under yellow risk for winds up to 70 and 80km/hr.

The warnings will remain in place until at least the end of tomorrow.
