CAUTION: The Guardia Civil has urged drivers to circulate the road with caution Photo credit Twitter

PART of the CV-755 that connects Callosad’ En Sarrià with the Castell de Guadalest has been damaged in the recent storms.

Several landslides affected the road, with fallen rubble blocking access and forcing traffic diversions.

Although the rubble has since been cleared, the Guardia Civil has urged drivers to circulate the road with caution.

Just law week, a landslide forced the evacuation of a village in the Swiss Alps.

The landslide last Wednesday morning sent an estimated four million cubic metres of mud, rocks and dirt flooding into the village of Bondo near the Italian border. About 100 people were evacuated, some airlifted out with helicopters.

Images taken after the landslide showed a broad swath of farmland covered in a grey, moving mass, with mud partially engulfing some buildings.

Swiss Police said 12 farm buildings, including barns and stables, had been destroyed by the flow of debris.
