Heavy rain causes more disruption


flooding ibizaIBIZA – Heavy rains have caused road closures and severe flooding as Ibiza’s infrastructure once again struggles to cope.

The tunnel on the airport motorway has been closed by authorities and all traffic diverted via San Jordi causing long tailbacks in the area. The closure is at least the third time this year police have restricted access to the tunnel after heavy rainfall made the passage unsafe.

Vast areas of Ibiza town are once again under water as the heavy rain caused flooding in Vara De Rey, Avenida España and parts of the Marina. The Spanish State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) issued a yellow warning for heavy rain and storms at midnight which will remain active until midnight tonight. Rainfall of up to 20 liters per square meter is expected.
