Heavy Rains Flood Lisbon, Portugal

On March 26, 1924, newspapers reported that Lisbon, Portugal, was struck by persistent rainstorms over a fortnight, leading to the collapse of several houses and forcing tenants to evacuate some of the larger dwellings hastily.

These incessant rainfalls caused widespread flooding throughout the country. Notably, the city of Coimbra, home to the only university in Portugal, experienced partial flooding.

The reports of the damage inflicted by these rainstorms were significant enough to be published in newspapers in Buffalo, New York.
