Piles of hail, flash floods and a tornado hits Spain

Streets of Madrid have been turned into rivers as flash flooding and hail inundated Spain’s capital. One of the worst affected neighbourhoods was Arganda del Rey where cars were washed away in the torrents of water while huge piles of hail built up along some streets. The Spanish Subway Department declared several metro stations and highways closed due to the destructive impact of the weather. But Madrid wasn’t the only city to be affected by the intense weather – about 500km south of Madrid an ominous tornado hovered over the town of Campillos.
