Marbella residents woke up to storms and flooding in many areas this morning
The Spanish Metrological Office (AEMET) reported that they were expecting 100 cubic metres to fall between 20.00 Saturday and midnight tonight.
On the roads several cars have been abandoned and there is heavy flooding in several stretches, including the tunnel in Sabanillas (pictured). The rains have also washed rocks onto the roads, and caution when driving is advised.
The rain is set to continue throughout the day until Monday, when the Orange Alert will be downgraded to Yellow.
