Spain is rapidly turning into a country of climatic extremes where it never rains – or it pours. Several provinces in the Basque Country were flooded by heavy rains last week, with up to 200 litres of rain per square metre falling in several area. Rivers overflowed, the Bilbao metro ground to a halt, several roads were unusable and hundreds of people were evacuated from low-lying areas. On the bright side, reservoirs reached comfortable levels of water all across the north of Spain to face what the weathermen predict is going to be a very hot summer.
