A tornado hit the port of Valldemossa yesterday, causing considerable material damage.
And Bernat Amengual, spokesman for the weather centre, did not rule out more tornadoes if a similar storm to yesterday hits the island.
Material damage in Valldemossa has not been estimated as yet, but trees were uprooted, tiles torn from roofs and boats moored in the tiny port were damaged. Yesterday, residents were assessing the damage, and lamenting over the losses.
Amengual said that hailstones measuring three centimetres had been reported in Vilafranca, Manacor, Porreres and Algaida.
The heaviest rainfall was in Santa Margalida where up to 46 litres per square metre was recorded.
In Montuiri, 35 litres fell, and 31 litres in Son Servera. Alfabia, Algaida and Binissalem all recorded more than 20 litres per square metre.
