MALAGA reservoirs have gained 35 hectometers of water due to storm Gloria.

This rise is the approximate equivalent of four months water consumption for the province.

The Hidrosur network published the data, showing the 35 hectometer increase, although this is far from the total last year when the levels increased to at least 45 hectometers.

La Conception dam in Marbella also benefitted from the rain storms, gaining a water increase of 10 hectometers, leaving the dam at a 64% capacity.

However, despite the increased rainfall, the dam in the region of Axarquia is only at 33% of its total occupancy. 

This overall water increase appears to be the only positive effect to come from the brutal storm.

Francisco de la Torre, the mayor of Malaga said that without the dams retaining this water ‘it would have had very negative consequences for Campanillas.’

Storm Gloria devastated parts of eastern Spain and left 13 people dead.
