In the Balearic archipelago 'Ana' has left numerous incidents. Winds of up to 90 km / h have stormed the sea, making traffic along the coast very dangerous. The provincial capital, Palma, has been the victim of floods, landslides and falling trees.

Rest of the country

While there have been no injuries, in various provinces such as Andalusia, flights have had to be diverted and canceled. So, fortunately, 'Ana' is a storm that has only left us material damage.

He is currently leaving the country to go to Denmark, whose center is expected to arrive around 1 a.m. today. But we will not be able to lower our guard, since new fronts are looming that will lower temperatures again and bring rains.
