Director Ron Howard was forced to abandon the production when torrential rain hit Canary Island and caused flash floods and mudslides.

The cast and crew of "In the Heart of the Sea" including Chris Hemsworth had to flee after flash floods and mudslides overtook the set. They were filming in La Gomera, Canary Island on Monday, December 2 when the natural disaster happened and killed 5 people on the island.

Per Page Six, the cast and crew received emergency warning from local authorities. Director Ron Howard tweeted, "Rare heavy rain in La Gomera forced us to our small converted cover stage." He posted photos of mud rivers and falling rocks before adding, "Torrential outside. ...Soon we were advised to wrap and evacuate. Pronto. ASAP."

The director kept his followers posted by writing, "W/out incident trucks moved to hi ground & all cast & crew waded to cars (calf deep) & made it out b-4 roads closed." He posted a picture of them driving through rivers of mud. "Good luck that no cars or people were swept away or hit by tumbling rocks," he continued.

So severe was the situation that five people died on the island of Tenerife, which is 20 miles from La Gomera. Many houses were swept away and any means of power were cut off. However, none of the cast and crew was injured. Production has been put on hold.

Hemsworth's pregnant wife Elsa Pataky also stayed on the Spanish archipelago with their daughter India.
