THE storms of Wednesday night caused chaos across the Marina Alta and even damaged a fairground attraction in Denia port.

Luckily, the fairground was closed and nobody was hurt as the winds tore across the town and the attraction came tumbling down.

As for infrastructure, lighting on carretera de Les Marines was out and a lifeguard station was brought down on the beach near calle Riu Cervol.

Two trees fell across the old Ondara road and calle Rio San Miguel, two cars were struck by lightning and two drains were burst in Denia.

Across the Montgo in Javea, the downpour flooded a cottage where four girls were holidaying.

They were evacuated by the Policia Local and spent the night in emergency shelter arranged by the Red Cross.
