#RedAlert Issued as Severe #Storms, #Flooding and #Blizzards Hits Parts of #Spain

At least a foot of snow covers a driveway, gate and trees in Biar, Alicante. It is several kilometres inland from the coast

At least a foot of snow covers a driveway, gate and trees in Biar, Alicante. It is several kilometres inland from the coast

Spain’s Costa Blanca and Valencian coastline have been pummelled by a vicious storm this morning, shutting Alicante airport, flooding homes and blanketing areas with at least a foot of snow.

Flights to London, Newcastle, Bristol, Edinburgh and other major cities were cancelled as the airport shut for the day, forcing holidaymakers to either travel to a different airport or sit tight until the dangerous weather moved on.

Towering waves have been pictured slamming into the coastline while, in Denia, seawater was filmed gushing through the streets of the city.

Snow drifts have also built up inland as a seven-hour shower in Villena, Valencia, left the city’s 35,000 inhabitants cut off after up to three inch piles of the white stuff blocked roads.

A red alert was issued for Storm Gloria yesterday, before it smashed into the region, warning it would bring heavy rain, snow, up to 75mph winds and waves that could reach eight feet in height.

It is expected to move towards the north-west of Spain tomorrow, with the bad weather unlikely to subside before Wednesday, the Spanish State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) said.

A 54-year-old Romanian woman died from hypothermia in Gandia, Valencia, following the vicious weather, local media reports. A 44-year-old man also died yesterday when he was run over by a van that lost control in snow-covered Santander, Asturias.

Terrifying footage shows waves sweeping into Denia, Alicante and appearing to surround people trapped in their cars.

The beach in Javea, further down the coast, has been pictured strewn with rubble and bits of wood washed up as the storm battered the headland.

Storefronts were also pictured smashed on the city’s contents, with glass panels and furniture strewn across the pavement outside.

Waves have been filmed rearing up to several feet high before slamming against the coastline in Calpe, Alicante, by the Alicante Meteorological Project.

The river Algar, in the mountains, has also been filmed bursting its banks and gushing over a tourist viewing platform at the Algar waterfall in a torrent of rapidly moving water.

As the storm hammered its way over the Spanish mainland the rain froze, causing a deluge of snow to fall over inland areas in the interior of Valencia and Alicante.

The 35,000 residents of Villen, Valencia, were isolated this morning after a seven-hour snowfall left snow drifts between two and three inches high blocking roads into and out of the town.

Thousands #Evacuate #Tropical #Cyclone #Sarai in #Fiji

NASA Worldview, Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS)

Two people have died and more than 2,000 evacuated after Tropical Cyclone Sarai brought strong winds and heavy rain to south-east Fiji.

The National Disaster Management Office (NDMO) in Fiji reported 1 fatality in Kadavu, while one person drowned in flood waters in Vunidawa in Naitasiri District on Viti Levu, Fiji’s main island.

Fiji Roads Authority said that 1 road was closed in the Northern Division, 21 roads closed in the Western Division and 15 roads closed in the Central Division.

The cyclone did not make landfall but its close proximity to Fiji brought strong winds and heavy rain, with Kadavu and Lau islands thought to be hardest hit. Fiji Meteorological Service reported gusts of around 150 km/h and rainfall of over 120mm in 24 hours in some areas.

As of 30 December the number of people in Evacuation Centres had fallen to under 500. NDMO said it will deploy its response team to the islands of Kadavu and Southern Lau once Sarai had moved away.

Fiji Meteorological Service said that, as of 30 December, Sarai was located about 65km east of Ono-i-Lau or 210 km south-southeast of Kabara. Cyclone Sarai is expected to exit Fiji water by 31 December and move towards Tonga.
