An intense and "unexpected" rain of hail and a downpour of water in which

45 liters per square meter

have fallen in less than half an hour has surprised the city of Sanlúcar de Barrameda (Cádiz) on Tuesday afternoon, causing some damage and floods in several areas of the Cadiz municipality.

In statements to the media, the mayor of Sanlúcar,

Víctor Mora

, has assured that these heavy rains "have surprised everyone" since the yellow alert notice received "at 2:00 p.m." was "for tomorrow." .

"There have been 45 liters in less than half an hour, which has caused many areas of Sanlúcar to be flooded and also, since it is hail, now that the water has stopped a bit, it prevents it from swallowing", warned the mayor , who explained that the municipal services, along with the Local Police and Fire Department, as well as Aqualia, which has requested vehicles from the Jerez and El Puerto company, have "quickly" set to work to go to the most affected areas, in particularly

those of the low neighborhood of Sanlúcar

seeing the damage

caused by this downpour to assess the situation.
