Spain’s meteorology service, AEMET, had issued orange and yellow rain warnings across the country’s north.
By Tuesday, the flooding had eased, El Diario said, but the situation was being monitored ahead of expected rain on Wednesday, and the possibility of floodwater coming from elevated areas. Credit: Guardia Civil via Storyful
