Talk of rain focuses attention on Carmenes del Mar

As the drought on the Costa Tropical continues and the Almuñecar Town Hall looks for ways to alleviate water shortage problems, the residents of Carmenes del Mar face a different problem. The lack of significant levels of rainfall in the last few years has meant that the movement of the hillside and the consequent deterioration of the buildings and roads of the urbanisations has slowed.

A number of newspapers have also published up-to-date summaries of the current situation. Here are a few of those links:
