At least 10 People dead in flash Floods in Mallorca Island
Footage broadcast on Spanish television showed cars being swept away by raging, muddy waters, houses flooded and vehicles piled one on top of the other.
AT LEAST 10 people have died, with six others missing after a series of devastating flash floods hit the Spanish island of Mallorca (Majorca).
One witness told he had to swim out of his car through a window to safety.
Spain’s meteorological office said the neighbouring islands of Ibiza and Formentera were now on high alert as the rain and storms moved there.
In Mallorca, the worst affected area lies 60 klm east of the capital Palma de Mallorca.
Around 100 extra emergency workers were dispatched from the Spanish mainland, along with two helicopters, eight vehicles and search dogs.
Many locals hit by the flooding spent the night in sports centres.
