Spain – Spain’s forecaster has issued a red weather alert for the Costa Blanca around Benidorm and Alicante after Majorca was hit by severe rain, hail and a tornado. The adverse weather conditions that affected the north-east of Spain earlier this week moved on to the eastern region of the Balearic Islands, causing power problems and flash floods. The holiday hotspots of southern Spain are facing a washout as the severe weather which lashed the Balearic islands hits the mainland.
