Madeira needs everyones support

What a terrible tragedy for all on Madeira when severe weather caused so much destruction and loss of life.
Madeira is hoping a swift clean-up operation will stop it from losing holidaymakers after the island was hit by flooding and mudslides.

Severe storms last weekend resulted in the death of 42 people, including one British woman, with another 13 still reported missing.

Tour operators have been urging clients not to cancel their trips as the floods did not affect tourist areas and the airport is now operating fully.

The Atlantic island’s infrastructure is recovering with electricity and water services restored.
Mobile phone and internet connections are also operating again.
The island relies on its tourist trade so lets hope that they will recover soon and that the cruise lines will continue to visit this beautiful island
