After the storm & Gota Fría arrived in Los Alcazares in Septemebr 2019 my local Chiringuito had to close for a few days whilst they cleaned up the flood waters & the bar area. They were able to open after a lot of hard work from all the staff but because the immediate area around the bar was covered in mud & water, which still drained down on to the square whilst other areas where being pumped out, a lot of its customers were not able to get there or didnt realise it had oppened up again.
I can confirm that it did open as it is right outside my apartment & that they were serving both food & drinks. This was great for me as I didnt have water myself for many days myself & getting out was difficult on my mobility scooter because of the mud & flood waters. I was able to struggle down with my kindle & although swimming was still out of the question I have been able to enjoy my Coffee & Tosatado every morning thanks to the work of the staff there.
Today the clean up of the square the bar is in, began & the diggers moved in to start to remove the mud. Bins that were still on the beach or in the sea were moved on to the beach for collection & mud was piled up ready for removal. I guess within the next few days the square will be completley cleared of mud & washed down. I hope that people will soon start to visit my favourite Chriringuito for something to eat & a drink, as I always like to meet & talk to new people whilst having breakfast at my local with a view.

After the clearing up has been done there is still some work to be done on repairing the beach front, but this video from my apartment block, taken by my neighbour, shows why we all love living here.
