The Costa del Sol floods affected a number of Costa del Sol residents. As a result, you may have damaged property that needs to be re-housed.
Luckily, although Manilva and Duquesa were two of the worse places to be hit by the rain and flooding, uStore-it escaped with very little damage and all of our storage containers and the goods within them stayed dry and damage-free.
It must be something to do with the location, as we know of many people suffering damage to cars, storage, houses and terraces. Not to mention the trees across the roads and the deluge of water which ran like a torrent through the tunnel into Puerto Duquesa.
Friends in Mijas Costa also suffered a similar fate with some underground garages completely flooded up to the ceiling, resulting in massive damage to vehicles which were literally floating in the streets.
Fatalities during the Costa del Sol Floods
At least two fatalities were reported on the coast. Walls collapsed over roads, unable to take the strain of the water rushing down from the mountains. Golf courses were also flooded with the fencing around Mijas Golf ripped out of the ground by the weight of the water.
After living on the Coast for 21 years, the floods have never been this bad since 1989, and to think this was after just 48 hours of rain?
