Flash storms in southern Spain have killed two people and damaged homes, businesses and farms.
Storms are forecast to hit central and eastern Spain later on Wednesday. The rains are expected to spread across Spain in the coming days.
Rain and hail struck the town of Alcala de Guadaira near Seville overnight, causing a bus to skid into a house which collapsed killing a woman inside.
In the same town, a woman in her 70s was swept away in a flood.
Sixty litres of rain fell per square metre within half an hour, leaving pile-ups of smashed cars and shop windows shattered.
Police reported an upsurge in burglaries as thieves took the opportunity to loot shops and businesses.
Many inhabitants of Alcala de Guadaira have spent a sleepless night, trying to mop the debris from their flooded homes.
The Andalucian regional authorities have not yet calculated how many millions of dollars of damage the deluge in this usually arid farming region has caused in spoiled crops.
