Spain: Spring brings snow on the peninsula's centre-south

21 March, 15:11

(ANSAmed) - MADRID, 21 MARCH - From the recent weeks' drought and high temperatures to snow: on the first day of spring, Spain and the capital Madrid woke up beneath a thin white layer during the morning hours. Low temperatures and snowfalls, unusual in this period of the year, caused the imposition of an "orange" and "yellow" (medium) danger code on over 30 Spanish provinces, as the State Weather Broadcasting Agency informed, and the use of snow chains for road circulation on the streets of Teruel, Granada, Jaen, Murcia and Castellon, in Central and south-east Spain, involving the provinces of La Rioja, Guadalajara (Castilla-La Mancha), Avila, Burgos, Segovia, Palencia, Soria and Valladolid, in Castilla y Leon. In the Valencia Community, car boxes, parks and basements were flooded due to heavy showers and rain, causing floods and tens of calls to emergency services.(ANSAmed).
