  • Description

    FOR THE SECOND TIME IN LITTLE MORE THAN SIX WEEKS, THE SPANISH CITY OF BARCELONA HAS BEEN SERIOUSLY HIT BY TORRENTIAL RAINS AND FLOODING. SO FAR SIX PEOPLE ARE KNOWN TO HAVE DIED AND SEVERAL THOUSANDS HAVE BEEN MADE HOMELESS.

    THE TORRENTIAL RAINS HAVE LASTED FOR ALMOST A WEEK. THE RIVERS RIPOLL AND LLOBREGAT HAVE FLOODED TOWNS AND VILLAGES THROUGHOUT BARCELONA PROVINCE AND HAVE FORCED THE EVACUATION OF ABOUT THREE THOUSAND PEOPLE FROM THEIR HOMES.

    IN SEPTEMBER, ABOUT EIGHT HUNDRED PEOPLE LOST THEIR LIVES IN THE SAME AREA. IN THE LATEST FLOODS, EIGHT HUNDRED HOUSES HAVE BEEN DESTROYED AND MANY OF THE HOMES REBUILT SINCE THE PREVIOUS FLOODS HAVE BEEN WRECKED AGAIN.

    FLOODS HAVE ALSO COVERED LARGE AREAS OF SOUTHERN FRANCE AND NORTHERN ITALY.
