Balearics on orange alert

Temperatures on the Balearics are rising.


Majorca was braced for near record temperatures this morning. The Palma Met Office said that it expected the temperatures to rise up to the 40 degrees Centigrade mark this morning.

Drink plenty of water and stay cool, was the advice from the Balearic government. The night-time temperatures also remained exceptionally high with the Gas and Electricity Board reporting a surge in demand overnight as households battled to keep cool.
