Freak thunderstorm storm causes damage in the Algarve

 

The skies turned black just after lunchtime and sheets of heavy rain and hailstone fell, particularly on the eastern end of the region.

 

Cars on the motorway were forced to pull over to let the worst of the weather pass, and in Alcoutim, a car was washed away after a stream burst its banks.

 

Minor damage was also caused by the unseasonal weather to walls, roads and smaller structures.
