SOME 60 residents and tourists have been rescued from their cars and roofs from flash floods tearing through Mallorca today.
It comes just a week after 13 people tragically died in the worst flooding the island has seen for a century.

A severe gota fria, or cold drop, is tearing through the island at an alarming speed, causing most of the main roads in the north to be blocked off.
Almost 100 Guardia Civil officers and firemen have already saved by helicopter residents and tourists trapped in vehicles on flooded roads and from the roofs of their water-engulfed homes between Alcudia and Pollenca.
The s’Erbossar stream has flooded and cut off all road access to Pollenca.
