Due to heavy rain in the north of the island, houses in Puerto de la Cruz have been flooded, roads are closed due to falling trees and landslides and the Plaza del Charco recorded a significant accumulation of water which reached a depth of about 35 centimetres (14 inches in old money) due to clogged drains.
CECOS received many 112 calls during the night and highway crews have worked hard all night to restore the roads affected by rain. By 6.00am this morning only 1 lane of the TF5 was open heading towards Santa Cruz.
This was reported today in the Spanish press not seen it yet in the English news so wonder what their take is on it.
For anyone in PdlC hope this does not spoil your holiday and that things are soon back to normal.
