Majorca was drenched with torrential rain overnight and in the early hours of this morning but thankfully there were no accidents or other incidents.

The downpour brought instant relief to drought-ridden areas of the island which have been in desperate need of water after the hot summer months.

According to the State Meteorological Agency, AEMET, the rainfall set a few records on the island.

Santa Maria del Cami was swamped with 70 litres a square metre, Palma and Llucmajor, got 60 litres and in the Serra de Tramuntana there was more than 50 litres a square metre of rainfall, with Valldemossa, Sóller, Llevant, Santanyí and Felanitx all saturated with at least 40 litres a square metre.

Aemet has issued orange weather alert for today and tomorrow.
