    yeah had a couple days of rain but that was just from the rain fall yesterday lol
    i went to el compello and there it was even worse it really was a massive flood
    but typical spanish drivers i dont think they know wat roads do in heavy rain so quite a few spins and crashes

    Not that unusual, a few years ago an English couple were swept away and drowned at a market, I think that was El Campello.

    In LaCa
    La Cala I think it was... We passed the "street" last week on the bus.. They used to used the area for a market and there was a flash flood just as Bill has posted..
    I re-call La Toretta and the bottom of ElRaco used to flood... !!

    Anyone know how the rain affected Raco. We have our caravan in storage there and intend to come over in about 10 days. Just wondering if we will still have a caravan to come to.
