The rain, thunder and lightning has continued all through the night, a storm many of us will never forget.
Hope you all remembered to put clocks forward an hour.
This is the moment when the island of Madeira was without light, following an electrical discharge. It was captured in a video published on the page ‘Meteo Trás os Montes – Portugal’.
The lightning struck the transport line between Calheta and Funchal – causing several damages – and the system of the Vitória Thermal Power Station went down.
