Iberian Peninsula braces for Hurricane Leslie

Hurricane Leslie is expected to hit the Iberian Peninsula within hours, bringing strong winds and heavy rains days after deadly floods on the Spanish island of Mallorca. The storm will most likely hit land around the Portuguese capital of Lisbon, before moving across the peninsula, bringing winds of up to 100 km/h. Earlier this week, 12 people died in the flooding on Mallorca in the Mediterranean. Currently a Category 1 hurricane, Leslie is expected to weaken slightly as it moves east. As of Saturday afternoon, Leslie was about 320 km west of Lisbon, the NHC said, adding that it is expected to become a post-tropical cyclone and dissipate. Spanish emergency services warned of the possibility of flash floods and urged to motorists to be vigilant in case of strong winds.
