A water stream complicates the circulation on the Carretera del Arco between Colmenar and Riogordo

A strong water trickle, which has barely discharged for 15 minutes, has been enough to cause chaos on the Carretera del Arco, the A-356, at the height of kilometers 14 to 15. This time it has not been necessary to cut the road, in the area is the Civil Guard regulating traffic, so drivers are asked for maximum caution when driving through this environment. The images captured by the neighbors reflect the effects of the heavy downpour, which has overflowed several streams, filling with stones and mud the roadway of this fundamental communication route inside the eastern region.

On the other hand, in the urban centers of Colmenar and Riogordo there have been no damages in homes or streets as a result of the water spout, as confirmed by the mayors of both locations, José Martín (PSOE), and Antonio Alés ( PP), respectively. The storm has caused some damage to the surrounding olive farms, although they are still pending evaluation.
