Storm Filomena brings heavy rain & strong winds to Gibraltar

Storm Filomena has arrived on the Rock, with the Government and MeteoGib issuing a flash warning of heavy rain, valid until midnight tomorrow.

They warn of occasional torrential downpours with a risk of thunder, and possible flooding, especially from around six tomorrow morning.

Extreme care should be taken, with travelling conditions becoming very difficult.

The Fire and Rescue Service told GBC it had had to deal mostly with floodings, as well as loose masonry, shutters and trees being dislodged or in danger of falling due to the strong winds.
