I live in Ontinyent and have to say it's been horrendous.

We couldn't leave the house due to flooding, landslides and an overturned fire engine that had been going to rescue someone.


Does anyone know what a DANA is that everyone keeps mentioning - is it a name for the storm, type of weather incident ...?

It seems that it is Depresión Aislada en Niveles Altos, also known as gota fría, which I have never really known the meaning of either

Quote:
Una DANA –también llamada gota fría– es una Depresión Aislada en Niveles Altos. Según el portavoz de la Agencia Estatal de Meteorología (Aemet), Rubén del Campo, es el resultado del choque de una masa de aire frío en altura con aire caliente de la superficie, que da lugar a chubascos y tormentas.

snikpoh and Megsmum like this.

Have a friend in a village in the Murcia area who has been posting video on FB - absolutely horrendous.

Yes DANA is the 'technical' name for a Gota Fría - a weather system which is very common in our area in the Autumn - although we had a severe one at Easter this year - very rare at that time of year, since the land & sea temperatures need to be warm - but we had a very mild winter.

As I said, they are common, but thankfully don't always bring floods & disaster.
