Roadway Rivers and Torrents in Scotland and Spain

Over the course of the past month, damaging floods have occurred in Scotland and Spain (as well as in Nigeria!) and this week we ran into a some footage that demonstrates some of the flood impacts. In northeast Scotland, 3 inches of rain fell in a short amount of time turning at least one street into a river and leaving a few motorists needing rescue from their cars.

The second clip comes from Vera Playa, in southeast Spain. The video shows what was once a small stream now a raging torrent causing some good sized road damage.

The road damage was actually the least of the flood impact as 5 people were killed in the flooding in Vera Playa from the torrential flood waters.
