Canary Islands wave destroyed the hotel’s balconies up to the third floor

Enormous waves are battering buildings on the north coast of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands.

A giant wave on a Spanish island has battered an apartment building and wiped out several third-storey balconies.

Vicious storms have led to cars being swept into the sea, and restaurant and shop fronts being completely destroyed.

On Sunday morning, waves crashed into the apartment buildings on the coast of Mesa del Mar, ripping balconies from some of the lower floors.

The mayor of the municipality of Tacoronte Alvaro Davila said that 65 apartments were evacuated.

After China, Indonesia is the world's largest plastic polluter, according to research published earlier this year. Upon further examination of the dead whale, it was found to have swallowed almost six kilograms of plastic waste.


It is unknown if any Irish tourists were caught up in any of the incidents.

Garichico was one of the worst-affected areas, with waves crashing over the sea wall and flooding streets to the astonishment of locals who filmed the water racing towards them as they ran for safety.

A severe weather alert has been issued for the area after evacuees were taken care of by Red Cross workers at a nearby sports hall.

Numerous homes evacuated in Mesa del Mar are holiday homes.
