GUSTS: High winds uprooted trees

AN ANDALUCIAN council has issued a yellow weather warning following tornado weather conditions, which uprooted trees.  

Towns across Andalucia experienced winds of up to 90km/hr and heavy rain yesterday, which caused trees to be ripped from the earth and Christmas lights to fall down.  

In Jerez de la Frontera, where a woman’s foot was hit by a falling sign after strong winds ripped through streets, the town hall issued a warning about conditions to residents.
