    Dozens of people have been evacuated from their houses during the storm that erupted on the northern coast of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands.

    A video posted on Twitter shows enormous waves striking a Marisol de Mesa house, sweeping away the railings from concrete balconies. 

    Some six-metre waves have crashed into buildings and restaurants, causing considerable damage, according to witnesses.
