Vera, Cuevas, Pulpí, Antas, Huercal Overa... and for some reason Mojácar, are all to declare their municipalities as 'Zona Catastrófica'. This will get them financial aid from the Government.

Must all come under the same catchment area, and why turn down money in these hard times !

Bit quick to judge there, no? Take a look at this lot.
Several people dead, lots still missing.

Not something we'd want to see again.

Yes, but nothing much happened in Mojácar, so why should they claim 'catastrophe' like the other towns, which need help?
Indeed, during the fire three years ago, Mojácar refused to call for help as that might have upset the tourist trade!

perhaps the sever damage to the local water supply system accounts for Mojacar claiming 'catastrophe' ?

Queen Sofía is coming to visit the damaged area of Pueblo Laguna tomorrow, together with stops in Puerto Lumbreras and down the coast in Málaga. (Lenox)

Thanks for that link, Pottsy, christ that must have been unbelievably frightening. The Arboleas pictures too. We are normally over this time of year and expect to see a bit of heavy rain - anyone know the last time anything on this scale happened?

A huge storm in 1973. Mojacar was cut off for three days, the iron bridge on the way to Huercal Overa was washed downstream (you can see it out the window, off the motorway just before the turn-off to Albox) and the Granada coastal town of La Rabita was washed away with over fifty dead. Rains of up to 500l/m2 on that occasion.

I'm pleased to say the Puerto Rey bridge is up and running and fair play to the authorities I thought we would wait some months for that, John.

How quick is that.

There is an urgent need for clothing, especially mens clothing and non perishable foods for those in need who have lost EVERYTHING. All these goods and anything that you can spare, electrical goods, kitchen ware, furniture etc can all be deposited in the Red Cross in Vera (situated on the old back road near Car show rooms) open Mon-Fri 9am-2pm and Mon-Wed- 4pm-7:30pm.
You can also volunteer to help directly with the much needed and necessary clean up organization which is being organized from a local, set up at the end of Las Buganvillas, next door to Aguila Bike Shop. All help is much appreciated and I think we would all like to have help if we were in a similar situation. (From Jessica Simpson)

Hi Lenox, this is a message sent to me on the 'Arboleas' forum, contact the member 'Collados' on the site

[quote author=collados link=action=profile;u=9466 date=1349625564]
Hi. I have a 3 seater settee, 4 wooden dining chairs, a double bed base (iron) plus computer table. Unfortunately I am in the UK but the goods are stored in Arboleas. My neighbours would be able to hand them over to anyone who would like to collect. Sorry I am not there to help.

Coming out to Mojacar next weekend and flying into San Javier, Murcia.
Is the AP7 open all the way to Mojacar.
When its time to return home, we usually take the coast road via Puerta Rey and onto Aguilas. Is this road open and is it safe to travel on this route.
