Stormy Seas In Lanzarote

The Canary Islands are considered to have the best year round climate in Europe and possibly further afield. But we do sometimes have to remember that Lanzarote is basically a small rock in the mighty Atlantic Ocean and occasionally Mother Nature lets us know not to take her for granted by ‘treating’ us to some stormy weather.

Why Does Lanzarote Suffer So Much When It Rains Heavily?

We have had a few days of very heavy rain here in Lanzarote, and as usual, roads were closed, many buildings suffered, schools were shut and sporting events were cancelled. Also as usual, we had people from northern Europe asking us why we can’t cope. After all, it’s “just rain.”
