The dam at La Concepción was forced to open its floodgates twice in December to release water after reaching its capacity. The need to empty the reservoir came about after the recent torrential rain in the province and is the first time the event has occurred in a number of years.

In just three months, since October, Marbella has collected more rainfall than in the whole of the previous year.
