Toll from Spain floods rises to 10: regional officials

Madrid (AFP) Sept 29, 2012


Ten people, including a young girl and an elderly woman, have died in Spain as a result of floods brought on by downpours, regional officials said on Saturday.

Five people died in the Andalusia region -- a woman in her 80s, a couple found in their car, a man who died of a heart attack and another man in the village of Archidona, near Malaga.

Five people have also died in the neighbouring region of Murcia. They were two men whose bodies were found on Saturday, a 10-year-old girl and two men who were drowned in their cars the day before.

In the region of Valencia, 35 people were injured after a tornado ripped through a funfair at Gandia, according to local press reports.

Some 500 people were evacuated from their homes after the torrential rains caused rivers to break their banks and flooded roads and railways, regional authorities said.

Most of the evacuees were returning home Saturday to clear up the mess with the help of local authority workers.

The rains drenched the south of the country before moving east and eventually north.

The ports of Valencia and Sagunto, which were ordered shut during the downpours, reopened on Saturday, local authorities said.

Two cargo ships ran ashore on the beach at El Saler, near Valenica.
