A brief but intense storm of rain and hail hit the city of Toledo on the afternoon of this Wednesday, shortly before 8:00 p.m., leaving water rafts and floods in various parts of the regional capital.
The downpour, sometimes accompanied by hail, has been felt in several areas of the Toledo capital as Palomarejos, Santa Teresa and the Paseo de La Vega, where it has complicated the circulation of the vehicles that were passing there at that precise moment.
The intense rains have caused in the last hours a total of 16 incidents in the area of Santanyí (Mallorca), the majority due to flooding of homes, businesses and public roads.
The surrounding roads have also been affected by the accumulation of water and firefighters have had to service multiple vehicles that have been trapped. Despite everything, the situation is at this time “controlled”, as reported by the Government.
