Wild weather in Albufeira

In Albufeira, Algarve, Portugal on April 2, 2014 by cubsur51 Tagged: ,

Torrential rain on Monday and Tuesday caused flash floods in the lower parts of town. Some of the drains are blocked with sand. On Monday night around 830pm the Avenida 25 de Abril had several inches of fast flowing water rushing towards the sea and into people’s basements and cellars.

On Tuesday afternoon the bar owner a few doors from me had stacked his patio furniture against a wall as it was raining very hard. I heard a loud noise amid very strong gusts of wind. I reached the front window in time to see his chairs, tables and umbrellas being hurled across the street, with cars braking to avoid them.

I grabbed this picture through the window in the rain.
