Flooding in Spain kills at least two

April 2, 2013 at 8:22 AM   |   Comments

CIUDAD REAL, Spain, April 2 (UPI) -- Two people died and hundreds were trapped after torrential Easter rain caused rivers to flood over their banks in central Spain, authorities said.

A bridge in Ciudad Real, just south of Madrid, collapsed when the Yeguas river overflowed Monday. Two people died while trying to cross the bridge in a van as it caved in, thinkSpain said.

At least 125 people have been evacuated from a camping and caravan park after the Mundo river overflowed its banks and left them trapped, thinkSpain said.

A young man was missing and feared dead in Valladolid, and was likely washed away by the raging Pisuerga River.

Most of the north-central region of Castille and Leon remained on red alert due to flooding caused by the Duero River overflowing, thinkSpain said.
