Spanish police said they had found the body of a person in an Alicante river while a source at rescue services said another person died after a building collapsed in nearby Alcoy, likely due to heavy rainfall.

A man working in a greenhouse was killed as hail pounded the structure, a mayor in the province of Almeria told Efe news agency, while authorities in Valencia province blamed the death of a homeless person on frigid cold brought by the storm.

Sea water poured into the Ebro delta, one of Spain's most important wetlands, inundating thousands of hectares of rice plants. "We can't remember anything similar ever happening," local mayor Lluis Soler told Cadena Ser radio.

Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez tweeted his "support and solidarity for the families of the victims of Storm Gloria and those suffering its the fatal consequences."
