THE Balearic Emergency department declared an Amber Alert in the Islands yesterday, the second most serious in terms of adverse weather conditions after “Red.” The warning came after strong winds battered all coastlines in the region throughout the day. The Balearic Interior ministry officially sent out an Amber Alert after the Met Office confirmed that gales were raging at Force 7 with intervals of Force 8. On Majorca, the areas most affected were the Tramuntana mountain range areas, and the South and Eastern areas of the Island. Described as a “Grade One” warning which is usually issued by the Met Office for torrential rain, an Amber Alert is declared when there is between a 40 and 70 percent probability of strong adverse weather conditions.
