Storm Gloria in Spain kills 4, disrupts travel

Hundreds of thousands were left without power in northeastern Spain, following an ongoing bout of strong winds and heavy snowfall which has so far left four people dead. 

The storm left 220 000 residents without power in Girona province, emergency services said, although a break in the main supply from France had been repaired.

Storm Gloria has battered Spain since Sunday, and reached southern France on Tuesday. Valencia on the Mediterranean coast and the Balearic Islands, including Mallorca, bore the brunt of Monday’s storm.
