Floods sweep through northern Spanish towns, killing a driver

Footage showed toppled cars in the streets of Tafallo and Pueyo after the raging Cidacos river, which surged from 11 centimetres (4.3 inches) to over four metres in a few hours, spilled onto the streets and swept away anything that lay in its path.

Floods sweep through northern Spanish towns, killing a driver

Clean-up efforts began on Tuesday (July 9) after a river burst its banks during sudden, torrential rain in the northern Spanish region of Navarra on Monday (July 8) night killing a man whose body was found after his car was swept away by the torrent of water.

The storms in Navarra caught the regional government by surprise, with four times as much rain falling than originally forecast and coming just a week after a Europe-wide heat wave that caused two deaths in Spain.

Local residents of Tafallo and Pueyo said they had no time to rescue their belongings as they were caught by surprise by the unexpected floods.

The government of Navarra recommended people stayed in their homes on Tuesday as heavy rains continued and surging waters smashed through major highways, dragging cars, tree branches and debris in its wake.
