Seven killed in flash floods in southern Spain
MADRID (Reuters) - Seven people were killed and hundreds evacuated after flash floods caused by torrential rain swept through the southern Spanish regions of Andalucia and Murcia, emergency services said on Friday.
Roads were closed and some public transport was disrupted after heavy rains that started early on Friday, flooding streets and homes after months of drought.
Four of the victims were in the coastal provinces of Malaga and Almeria, which are both popular tourist destinations.
