Orange alert for seven districts

The Portuguese Met Office has placed seven districts under orange alert due to the prevailing weather conditions.

With the arrival of Storm Laura, strong winds, heavy rains and rough seas have seen authorities place coastal regions in northern and central Portugal on the second highest level of alert.

The remaining 11 districts will remain on yellow alert until at least 3am on Thursday morning.

The weather also affected the island region of Madeira, which had to divert 11 flights to Lisbon due to gale force winds.
