January 21, 2020 at 17:29 GMT +00:00 · Published

The streets of Tossa de Mar, in the Catalan province of Girona, were flooded by see foam that formed during Storm Gloria on Tuesday.

This curious phenomenon occurs due to the organic substance produced by marine plankton, which in specific conditions creates this type of foam.

According to Civil Protection sources from the Catalan Government, the storm will reach even more strength in the next few hours, and citizens have been asked to take precautions.

Spanish authorities declared a red alert in several provinces due to the bad weather conditions caused by Storm Gloria.

In total, four people have lost their lives in different parts of the country.
