Flash floods swept away cars and swamped homes in the regions of Valencia, Murcia and eastern Andalusia.
Five people died in separate accidents in the previous two days as they tried to cross flooded roads in cars, including a man whose vehicle got stuck in a tunnel on Friday in the centre of the coastal city of Almeria.
After observing the damage from a helicopter flying over the city of Orihuela in the region of Valencia, Sanchez visited a command centre for emergency operations.
Later he offered his condolences to the families of the dead and said the government would do everything it could to help the survivors.
"All those who have been affected need to know that the Spanish government will help so that at least they can repair many of the material damages caused by this extraordinary meteorological phenomenon," he told reporters as he
arrived in Murcia.
