The IPMA (Portuguese Institute of the Sea and the Atmosphere) put the whole of Madeira and Porto Santo under yellow alert for rain in the early hours of the morning, this will run till 4pm today.

Here in Caniço the rain has not stopped since 11am yesterday, very heavy at times, and still raining now, although not as heavy.

Today is a bank holiday in Portugal (Restauração da Independência) so if you are on the island and not working, have a great day.
