The remnants of the tropical hurricane Joaquin is approaching Spain with great speed. The outer areas of the storm is expected to affect many parts of Spain.
Joaquin originated on September 27th in the Atlantic creating much trouble in Bahamas with very strong winds and very heavy rain which gave heavy flooding. It was designated as a hurricane category four and is considered the strongest hurricane in years. But it is now declining in strength as it crosses the Atlantic reaching Europe later this weekend.
The storm is expected to reach the Canaries already this Saturday and the mainland on Sunday. It can involve heavy rain and strong winds. However, according to meteorologists at the Spanish Meteorological Institute AEMETthe path of storm is very difficult to predict. The storm is expected to keep on until Monday (Spain’s National Day). On the other hand Saturday appears to become nice on the mainland (except possibly in Galicia).
