THE Eastern coast and the Balearic Islands have been battered by a bout of flooding, just a week after 13 people tragically lost their lives in Mallorca.
Valencia and Catalunya have been placed on red alert – the most dangerous risk – as the ‘gota fria’, or cold drop, continues to ravage the country.
AEMET has issued an orange alert with a ‘significant risk’ for Mallorca, as Pollenca and Manacor have already been hit by flooding today.

Emergency services have so far responded to some 34 incidents, while the area of Manacor is still recovering from the devastating floods last week.
Meanwhile some 1,906 calls for help were placed between 11pm last night and 6am today in Valencia and around 30 people had to be rescued from cars in Castellon as the streets began to fill with water.
