North coast suffers again

More heavy rain follows Xmas floods

North coast suffers again 1

The poor north coast is suffering again it appears! The rain hit the south coast of Madeira yesterday and overnight as predicted, but today has switched its attention once again to the area of the north coast that was so badly affected on Christmas Day, but this time including the easternmost municipality of Machico, out beyond the airport.

The intensity of rain and wind forced the road between São Vicente and Porto Moniz to close. Via Expresso interrupted the connection between the two municipalities for security reasons.

JM reported at 17:00 pm today that the weather is getting worse, hour after hour, and circulation is very conditioned in the two northern districts, mainly in the parishes of Seixal, Ponta Delgada, and Boaventura. The YouTube video below shows the main road on the north coast between São Vicente and Porto Moniz closed by the highway authorities.
