Storm Gloria Batters Spain, Kills 3 People

Parts of Spain will remain under red alert throughout Tuesday for dangerous winter storm.

By Alyssa McMurtry
OVIEDO, Spain (AA)- Storm Gloria, a high-pressure system bringing strong winds, heavy rains and snowfall, has claimed three lives so far and continues to rip across a large part of Spain.
Parts of Catalonia and Teruel are under red alert and dozens of other regions in Eastern Spain are at high risk for winds stronger than 100 km/hour, up to 40cm of snow in mountainous regions and dangerous waves of more than eight meters on the Mediterranean coast.
Already, the storm has caused major flooding in coastal regions and blizzard conditions in the interior.
One of the storm's victims was sleeping rough in the resort town of Gandia and died of hypothermia. A man was killed in a traffic accident in Asturias and the third victim was mortally injured by flying debris in the central region of Avila, according to local news outlets.
Spain's fifth-largest airport in Alicante airport will be closed throughout Monday. Likewise, dozens of highways, parks and beaches have also been blocked off by authorities.
AEMET, Spain's meteorology agency, predicts the storm will not let up until Wednesday. -
