Gale-force winds rolled across the Iberian peninsula of Spain on Saturday causing trees to fall down and cutting power. Flights were also cancelled in the Canary Islands. Rain also accompanied the storm, hitting the mainland hard, but the Northern provinces were the worst affected.
In Galicia, winds were clocked at 197 kilometers per hour and around 27,000 people were without electricity. The government temporarily banned trucks from using highways because the storm was so strong.
The conditions were caused by warm air pushing from the south and colliding with cold air to the north. The weather system has now moved into France.
