Winter sun takes a short break as ‘Hurricane Laura’ brings gales to Spain
06 March 2019 @ 23:10

Late February’s and early March’s exceptional weather is about to subside for a while – bright sunshine, cloudless skies and temperatures of up to 26ºC are starting to give way to rain and gale-force winds pushing 150 kilometres per hour.

‘Hurricane Laura’ has just entered Spain via Galicia in the far north-west, bringing with it four centimetres (nearly two inches) of rain and leading to over 100 emergency call-outs last night (Tuesday), although fortunately, nobody has been hurt.

Strong winds have now spread to the Mediterranean, but the full impact of ‘Hurricane Laura’ is due to strike over the next few days as it makes its way across the mainland.

Peak wind speeds were registered in Viveiro (Lugo province, Galicia) last night, at 149.3 kilometres per hour (93mph), and across the region’s other three provinces of A Coruña, Ourense and Pontevedra, ranged between 117 and 122 kilometres per hour (73-76mph).
