Storm Gloria - Spain death toll rises to 13 with five missing

A violent storm that has ravaged parts of Spain with heavy rain and violent winds has left at least 13 people dead.

Spanish authorities said five people were still missing after Storm Gloria triggered floods and swept away roads.

The Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez flew over some of the worst hit eastern areas and visited Majorca which has been battered by huge waves.

The government is to hold an emergency meeting on Friday to co-ordinate a response. Sanchez told reporters there would be “no scrimping on any resource or effort”.
