December 2005 storm claims one victim

Even our usually bone dry barranco was still running on 20 December 2005

On December 19, 2005 and when the inhabitants of Tenerife had not yet recovered from the serious consequences that Tropical Storm Delta had left, there was a new episode of intense rains on this island that, together with strong winds, left a mortal victim: a woman, resident in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona, when she accidentally fell into the Fañabe ravine and was swept away by the flood. This storm also left other material damage, such as: the TF-1 highway cut due to the flooding of the highway and cancellation of flights at Reina Sofía airport, which had to be diverted to Los Rodeos and Gran Canaria airports.
