Rare snowstorm closes Madrid airport, creates travel chaos

The city has raised the level of natural danger to the highest since the grading system was introduced in 2007.
Madrid will suffer from heavy snowfalls brought by Storm Filomena. This was reported by Reuters on Saturday, January 9.

Precipitation also covered much of the neighboring region of Castile-La Mancha.

In the Spanish capital because of snowfall raised the level of natural danger to the highest – the first time since 2007, when the relevant grading system was introduced.

In turn, the Spanish meteorological service said that the snowfall will be the biggest for the region since the beginning of the 21st century.

Before Spain, Storm Filomena came to the Canary Islands, where there were strong gusts of wind and rain. In Gran Canaria, a ferry carrying 59 passengers ran aground when it tried to enter the port.

Recall that earlier in the Bering Sea a “cyclone-bomb” with 18-meter waves raged. The storm raged far from populated areas and had no significant impact on people, but was dangerous for ships.

Hurricane Yota was also reported to be raging in Central America. In Colombia and Nicaragua, the hurricane caused flooding. There were reports of casualties and destruction.
