A tourist van was badly damaged this morning when rocks fell in Ribeira Brava

“Miraculously no one was hurt during the rush hour,” said one of the drivers who were startled by the fall.

The rock fall occurred this morning next to the Madeira Sports Centre, located in the valley of the Ribeira Brava, which could have ended in tragedy.

More bad weather is forecast from Thursday evening, through to Sunday. strong winds and the potential for heavy rain. It looks like an Orange alert will be issued for this tomorrow, and could well be raised to red. I will give an update as we get nearer the time.

The video captured by Orlando Pereira shows what state the road was, before it was cleared  by the concessionaire Via Express.
