Locals said on Thursday that they were lucky that no one died in the city between midnight and 6 pm on Wednesday, even after the city was filled with more than 250 liters per square meter (45 gallons per square yard).
Rosa Maria Sancho, owner of a restaurant on the Alcanar boardwalk, said that because of the floods, we had to go upstairs to our apartment to save our lives.
After that we left everything in the hands of God. Sancho’s daughter, Carla Bayri, said that due to the flash floods, the roads rapidly took the form of rivers and washed away everyone who came in her way.
Several cars swept into it and reached the Mediterranean Sea. Homes and business establishments were filled with mud and water. A part of their roof also got washed away in the sea, he said. She was watching all this helplessly.
Other parts of Spain’s central and northern regions, including Madrid, also witnessed flood-like conditions on Wednesday. Here the people trapped in the flood were rescued by the rescue workers by helicopter and other means and shifted them to safe places.
At the same time, work has also been started to restore transport on roads and train lines that have been damaged due to water and mud. Regions in the north of Spain and the Balearic Islands remained on alert for the storm for the second day in a row.
