Roads turned into rivers as torrential rains lash Spain

At least three people have died and two are missing in Spain after heavy rains triggered flash floods and impacted transportation systems.

The weekend storm affected almost the whole country.

The torrential weather comes after Spain, which has endured three years of scant rainfall that has prompted some regions to impose water-use restrictions, endured an intense heatwave and persistent high temperatures in August.

Scientists warn that extreme weather marked by heatwaves and storms is becoming more intense as a result of climate change.
