Canary Islands: Flooding in Tenerife

Heavy rain in the city center of Palm Mar on the Spanish island of Tenerife caused several incidents yesterday.

An underground parking lot was completely flooded on the popular tourist island.

Streets were also flooded and local media reported that cars of some residents and tourists were damaged.

A Facebook user posted a video showing water gushing into an underground parking lot in Palm Mar.

Kasia Karkowska said: “All the year-long rains just came down all at once and it’s over!”

Michael Keating said: “Who says it doesn’t rain in Tenerife?”

Local media shared videos of residents wading through water in Palm Mar due to severe flooding.

A Twitter user named Angela said yesterday: “This is getting very serious. It’s 500 meters from my house. We can’t go outside now because it’s too dangerous.”

On Friday there was heavy hail in the northern part of Tenerife, while in other areas the sun was shining.

It snowed on Mount Teide in Tenerife, and the Spanish Civil Guard was deployed to regulate the crowds.

Many people traveled to the national park to see the heavy snowfall, which could create dangerous conditions.

One road was closed, and in La Esperanza there was an accident involving four cars because of the snowfall.

Meanwhile, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and parts of Tenerife were hit by another calima on Friday.

Calima is a hot wind that carries dust to the Canary Islands. It can leave a layer of dust covering cars and houses.

Lanzarote has a weather warning because of the calima, which can worsen visibility for drivers.

Gazette Life published, “A calima warning issued by AEMET is in effect today. The yellow dust warning will remain in effect until midnight and may be extended.”

One Twitter user said: “Time to go home. Just as well we woke up from another calima.”

The Canary Islands are an extremely popular winter vacation destination for many Britons each year.

The islands are usually sunny in winter because of their proximity to the equator.
