The Valencian Community and the Region of Murcia are at risk of "severe storms" between next Thursday and Saturday, so we must be "attentive" to the recommendations of the next 48 hours.
This was stated today by the director of the Climatology Laboratory of the University of Alicante (UA) and also president of the Association of Spanish Geographers (AGE), Professor Jorge Olcina, before participating in the forum / debate "Water in Alicante , future challenges ", organized in the Museum of the Aguas de Alicante company.
In the same line, the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) had already warned of the formation, starting on Thursday, of a new episode of heavy rainfall on the shores of the Mediterranean associated with the formation of a cold drop or DANA (Isolated Depression in High levels).
Therefore, the population has been urged to "be attentive" to the recommendations issued by the Meteorology and Civil Protection Agency in the next 48 hours, because -according to Olcina- "it can be a complicated situation".
It has continued that it is difficult to determine if these rains will affect the province of Murcia, Alicante or Valencia, although in any case it has insisted that the risk of these rains is "high".
Olcina recalled that in the Valencian Community "more than two million people live in areas at risk of flooding", so we must take extreme precautions.
Along with this specialist, the head of Water Quality of Municipalized Waters of Alicante, David Ribes, the professor of Urology of the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH) Jesús Romero and the professor of Marketing of the University of Alicante Carla Rodríguez.
The debate is part of the activities promoted by Aguas de Alicante to celebrate its 120th anniversary (1898-2018).
