The regional emergency services headquarters in Valencia reported that they had received 945 calls from the public between 11.00 on Wednesday and 07.00 this morning (Thursday) and attended to 671 incidents caused by the torrential rain, ‘most of which were trapped vehicles and flooded basement garages’.
