News for those of you living in the Uk.
Gale force winds have battered Los Gigantes this weekend. More wind is forecast for today but at the moment it is nice and calm. The winds were blowing in from the African coast, bringing with them massive clouds of dust from the Saharan Desert. Los Gigantes was not too badly damaged, patio furniture was thrown around, signs blown down etc, but El Hierro, our neighbouring island was badly effected. Weather stations recorded 120km wind strength and guests staying in the Pozo de la Salud were evacuated.
Now everyone is faced with a massive clean up as everywhere is thick with dust ? at least the wind was warm!!
