Rainfall in October smashed records in various parts of Majorca. The most obvious heavy rain was that which led to the Sant Llorenç floods and deaths. On 9 October, 232.8 litres per square metre were recorded at the Colonia Sant Pere weather station in Arta. The previous record was in 1990 when 200 litres fell in one day. In Sant Llorenç itself there were 220 litres on 9 October. This was vastly more than the 74 litres in 1994, which was the previous record.
