    I know Malaga and Alora have been affected by the recent heavy rains but can anyone tell me whether both Alhaurins, Coin and surrounding areas have had problems, and other towns and villages?

    The information is a bit a sketchy other than about Malaga and Alora.

    My husbands town and nearby in Almeria. There are some amazing photos on the Spectrum FM radio website. Motorway roads ripped up, bridges unpassable and a dry old riverbed overflowing (lucky they had built banks of cement rather than building on it). My husband has just spoken to his Dad out there and two old guys died near the town and apparently another man in Vera Playa died. The place ‘Pueblo Laguna’ in Vera was badly affected. That though, is what my husband points out about the bad building in the area. The name says it all…… sad for those living there.

    Is it hard to get insurance against flooding damage? It does seem that the coastal fringe from Valencia southwards, can expect these downpours Autumn time.
    Flood or fire damage is something none of us wish on others’ property. I’ve been in a flat that had fire/smoke damage, so have an inkling of how long it can take before things are back to normal.

    Puerto Lumbreras was very badly hit.
    Friends of ours , and their neighbours,who live 6 miles from the main town were on Friday hit by what only can be described as a tsunami of water over 2 metres high with a spread of 200 + metres not only decimating the
    gardens but spilled raw sewage into the house and floated their vehicles more than a mile.
    Othe area looks like a war zone.
    The clean up is going to take months

    Just heard today that two friends have returned home expecting to see flood damage to find that their houses have been broken into and ransacked as well.

    Is civil unrest getting closer and closer?? So sad. 🙁

    Puerto Lumbreras / Lorca area has been classified as a National Disaster area…again…and special units set up to help mainly the Spanish farmers who rarely have the normal insurance cover let alone cover for a disaster of this magnitude.
