Wildfires rage across Southern Europe in early Spring

Southern Europe has been struck by intense wildfires already in late March, helped by low rainfall and dry weather for the season, especially in Spain and Portugal

Spain, Portugal, Italy and Croatia have been struck by wildfires already in early Spring, helped by abnormal weather for the season with low rainfall, high-speed winds and dry weather in these areas.

Firefighters have been fighting two major blazes in the Northern region of Portugal this Tuesday with schools and roads being shut by local authorities. With no rain on the past few weeks and high temperatures, reaching 28 degrees Celsius in some areas on Monday, Portugal has been on high alert since the end of the weekend in order to avoid tragedies such as the one of Pedrógão Grande in 2017, where 64 people were killed and more than 250 injured during this tragedy, in part due to the Socialist government nepotism and incompetence on nominating associates of the party in the Civil Protection unit.

Fires have been raging in Northwestern Spain, in the region of Galicia, due to the same conditions seen in Portugal.

The scenarios are the same in Northwest Italy, in the town of Sacro Monte di Belmonte, where the Italian hills have also been engulfed by fire.

Croatia has also seen its share of fires, where we can see a Canadair water bomber fighting the flames in Sutina, Southern Croatia.
