Catalonia this will say goodbye Thursday, November 25, of the storm caused by the DANA, the storm whose center is now over the Catalan territory. The rains, some with electrical equipment and hail, have continued intermittently during the early hours of the morning and will remain for much of the morning. With the passing of the hours and little by little, the DANA will have withdrawn to give way to a colder and windy environment. For Saturday, Civil Protection has activated the pre-alert for strong winds in several Catalan regions.
One of the places where hailstorm has been at Barcelona airport, one of whose tracks has been inoperative for an hour, which has caused delays and cancellations.
The hail episode has occurred approximately between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. and it is complicating the activity at the Catalan airport, although the operators are working to remove the hail from the runways and normality is expected to return in a short time, according to sources at the aerodrome reported to Efe.

The the most affected track is that of the sea, which has been completely inoperative about 40 minutes, and the forecast is that it begins to work progressively as the accumulation of hail is removed.
The other two tracks have also been affected, although to a lesser extent, by the hail episode that has occurred throughout the Baix Llobregat region.
The hail that has fallen is being removed mechanically as the use of salt is not useful in this case, so the cleaning operation takes longer. The same sources have pointed out that there are less than half a dozen planes that were supposed to land in El Prat and that they have had to deviate to land at other airports.
According to the FlightRadar platform, around 60 flights have suffered delays ranging from 30 minutes to more than an hour. Aena expects to return to full activity at noon, reports ACN.
