The first pre-autumn DANA arrives weakened to the Northwest and the Altiplano

The month of September is considered a window between the summer and autumn seasons. It is a time of transition, characterized by an increase in atmospheric dynamism and meteorological instability. This is how Luis Bañón, from the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) in Murcia, states that the DANA that has traveled the Peninsula
it has affected the Region marginally.

«In general, we are in a situation of blockade, which we call ‘rex type’,
triggered by an anticyclone in the British Isles and the influence of a storm that have been fed by very humid and warm air from the Mediterranean to the south. This has caused this episode of storms to have had a special virulence in some areas of Spain, although in the Region its influence has been limited, “he explains. The meteorologist states that storm episodes are very difficult to predict “since what is analyzed are the confluence of ingredients for these to occur, hence the warnings are activated; Another thing is that in the end they materialize ».

In the Community, DANA arrived late and somewhat weakened and Aemet activated alerts yesterday, between three in the afternoon and midnight, of
orange level in the Altiplano and Northwest due to storms of up to 30 liters per square meter in one hour, and yellow warning in Vega Alta del Segura and Murcia due to heavy rains. Faced with this alert, the Community decreed the pre-emergency phase of the Special Plan for Civil Protection against Flood Risk (Inunmur Plan).

For its part, the Murcia City Council activated a special device made up of different municipal services such as Local Police, Firefighters, Traffic, Street Cleaning, Public Lighting and Parks and Gardens, as well as the Mobile Emergency Service and Social Assistance (SEMAS).
