Thunderstorm hits the Rock

Rivers poured through Gibraltar's streets as a thunderstorm hit the rock on Sunday afternoon. 

The Royal Gibraltar Police revealed that parts of Queensway had been closed due to heavy flooding.

As of 2.30pm Meteogib reported that 12.6 mm of rain had been collected at their station with this number likely to be higher around Gibraltar. The forecaster said there was further risk of flooding throughout the day.

Meanwhile, organisers for the Gibraltar Calling festival took to social media warning members of the public not to bring umbrellas to the event, as these would not be allowed for safety reasons.
