The storm of rain and storms that affects the province of Almeria on Thursday has caused more than 60 incidents in the province, without so far there have been personal injuries, in addition to causing the cut of four secondary roads and the train track in Pulpí.

The 112 of Andalusia has begun to receive notices for partial flooding of houses and accumulation of water rafts on roads from 7:30 p.m., especially in the municipalities of Pulpí, Vélez-Blanco, María, Chirivel, Vélez-Rubio, Huércal-Overa, Topares and Caves of Almanzora.

The accumulation of rainfall has caused the increase in the flow of the ramblas of these municipalities, belonging to the Segura Basin, causing the cutting of the AL-1201 road between Pozo del Esparto and the Port of La Higuera in Pulpí, the AL-8103 in Huércal-Overa, the A-399 in Chirivel, kilometer 31,550 and the AL-8105 at the height of the hamlet of Las Herrerías at its junction with the AL-8106 in Cuevas de Al-manzora, as well as the flooding of Train tracks passing through this municipality that connects the province with Murcia.

The emergency services have also had to intervene in the assistance to the occupants of a vehicle dragged by the current of a ravine in the Norias de Huércal-Overa place and another in a lane towards the San Antonio hermitage in Vélez-Rubio.

The coordination center has also managed incidents due to water rafts on the AP-7 motorway, slow movement on the A-7 motorway from Hoguera, AL-8105, A-350 and A-332 as it passes through Pulpí and Vélez- Blond.

The delegate of the Andalusian Government in Almeria, Maribel Sánchez, decreed last Wednesday afternoon the preemergence in the surveillance phase of the Emergency Plan against the Risk of Floods of Andalusia (PERI) in its provincial deployment.
