Defense Minister Margarita Robles spoke live on LaSexta Noticias to comment on the military’s actions in Storm Filomena, the effects of which caused major accidents on hundreds of roads in Spain.

Robles acknowledges that the UME “is always ready”, even though this snowfall “has far exceeded what was expected”.
