The foul weather has already killed five people in Valencia, four in Catalonia, two in Andalusia, one in Castile and Leon, and one more in Asturias.
The death toll may rise, as four people are still missing in Catalonia and the Balearic Islands.
A representative of the Catalan government has called on people to exercise caution amid the bad weather. On Thursday, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez visited Catalonia and the Balearic Islands, hit by the disaster. He also expressed condolences to the victims' families.
“I think what’s important right now is that we’re all united, that we work shoulder-to-shoulder and cooperate, as we are doing”, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said.

Earlier in the week, nine Spanish provinces were on red alert amid troublesome weather conditions, with hundreds of thousands left without power in northeastern Spain.
Storm Gloria's heavy snowfall, strong winds of up to 144 kmh (90 mph), and waves up to 13.5 metres (44 feet) high swept over the peninsula last week.
