The effects of Gloria storm
Storm Gloria, which took place between January 19-23, 2020, was a wake-up call as to how fragile the Ebro Delta is
The heavy sea storm broke the sand bar at the Illa de Buda, which caused sea water to enter into the lagoon and had a direct impact on the fish population. More than 2,300 hectares of rice fields were flooded, numerous infrastructure elements were damaged and the Trabucador sand bar vanished, submerged into the sea. According to climate change projects, weather events like Storm Gloria could become increasingly more frequent.
