The seaside town of Javea in the Alicante province of eastern Spain bore the brunt of the Storm Gloria on Monday when waves burst over the shore line and ravaged the promenade and sea front.

Images of the storm and the damage caused by it have flooded social media.

Here is some of the most dramatic footage.

The video shows the massive waves crashing over the Paseo Maritimo and pounding against a building on the shore front. 

The terrifying size of the waves and the whistling wind are clearly visible in this footage: 

And a shot from another angle shows how the rough seas surged over the sea wall and came into the little harbour.

The damage caused by the waves can be seen here: 

 

 

And another one shows the detritus left behind by the storm.

 

An enormous sea bass was among the things washed up in the street.

It's going to be a big job to clear up after this storm.

 

What are normally dry river beds or gentle streams leading from the mountains to the sea were raging torrents.

 Red Cross workers were out clearing up once the storm passed.
