Spain under weather alert, storm claims four lives

On Thursday, the powerful storm known as Storm Nelson continued to make its way towards Britain, bringing with it snow showers. The storm had already claimed four lives in northern Spain, where two individuals drowned after falling into the sea in the provinces of Asturias and Cudillero. Additionally, a minor Moroccan boy found himself in trouble in the water and a German man tried to save him, but unfortunately both drowned.

In response to the impending danger, the Spanish Meteorological Institute issued weather warnings for the Spanish coast and the Canary Islands due to dangerous waves and strong winds. The waves were expected to reach heights of up to 6-7 meters and people were advised to avoid rocky cliffs. In England, tourists flocked to Brighton Pier as they witnessed high waves from Storm Nelson. In Spain, strong winds were reported in Ronda that blew a tourist’s umbrella upside down.

The storm also affected southern France with strong winds and high waves. As Storm Nelson moved closer to Britain, snow was reported in northern parts of England and Wales. The impending arrival of this powerful storm was expected to cause chaos in Easter traffic throughout Britain.
