Update Saturday 2pm Temperatures dropped to a low of 0.4 degrees on Pico do Areeiro last night, resulting in a small amount of snow falling.
A crane in São Martin fell last night destroying some allotments and an unused building, the safety of the crane had already been highlighted to the authorities in Funchal and on social networks, but nothing was done. No one was hurt but if it had happened during the day then people could well have been working on their land.
