Residents were pictured using ski equipment to make their way through the town, which was described as being ‘cut off’ yesterday. 

It comes as eight other regions were put on high alert by weather agency AEMET for snow, strong winds and dangerous coastal conditions. 

Storm Gloria has now killed a total of eight people while another four are missing. 

Two of the missing people are in Ibiza while another is in Soller, Mallorca. 

One person is missing in Palamos, Catalunya.
