DISCUSSION: As a strengthening low pressure system approached western and southwestern parts of Spain over the past few days, there has been a tremendous amount of energy and moisture transported towards and into parts of western Europe. As a result of this abundant moisture and energy, some areas such as this footage captured over in Veneguera, Spain received very heavy rainfall which led to flooding and even flash flooding in some parts of southwestern Spain. As you can clearly see in this footage, this part of Spain is quite mountainous which facilitates a greater likelihood of heavy rainfall run-off occurring which consequently will induce life-threatening mudslides and/or landslides into towns and villages.
