Cost of damage has not been evaluated but it will take days to clear up

20-08-2013
Cala Sant Vicenç in Pollença is slowly getting back to normal after the storms which caused serious damage on Friday. It was second time unlucky for the popular resort area, which was also devastated by the storms which hit the island in November, uprooting trees and causing damage which can still be seen. Yesterday neighbours were out in force, rescuing tables, chairs, curtains, mattresses, clothing from basements and ground floors in the street which runs parallel to the Can Botana water course, which flooded the area as it was unable to cope with the rain. The mud will take days to clean up, one neighbour said gloomily. Adding to residents' woes is the fact that the storm also broke the water mains, so they have to collect water from Can Botana by the bucket. Cala Molins beach is still closed to the public and heavy machinery could be seen trying to repair the worst of the damage. Cala Barques suffered less damage than Cala Molins, but machinery was still needed to spread the sand which had been driven to one side by the force of the water.
