ALMOST 70 emergencies were registered in the Balearic Islands over the weekend due to the heavy rains.
They included 56 incidents in Mallorca such as houses, businesses and streets flooding, and trees and other items falling.
In Calle Servet in Palma, part of the ceiling of a house collapsed but no-one was injured and the occupants did not need to be evacuated.
Apart from the rains, there were more than 2,000 bolts of lightning in just six hours and more than 4,000 throughout Friday and Saturday, most of which hit out at sea.
The Islands were on orange alert for rain and storms based on warnings from the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET), and the worst affected were Mallorca and Menorca.
