Mallorca's coast guard still searches for missing fisherman

STORM Ana has caused over 50 incidents across the Balearic Islands from strong winds, heavy rains and forceful waves.

Mallorca’s coast guard still searches for missing fisherman

The islands are still on orange alert, with 50 calls to 112 services coming in since the fisherman disappeared at sea on Sunday in Santa Ponsa. Police are still searching for the missing man who reportedly fell into the water after a huge wave caught him.

The south coast of Mallorca is currently being hit the hardest, with harsh southwest winds hitting Playa de Palma, Palma and Calvia area. Palma’s Can Pere Antoni beach has been left bare after all the sand washed away into the sea.  Palma’s Paseo Maritimo has been flooded most of Monday.

Most of the incidents reported involved trees, furniture and awnings breaking off, some damaging cars. Seven flights have been cancelled from the storms that have also hit many areas of Europe.

The forecast suggests Mallorca will again be in stormy and wet Wednesday through Friday.
