The Spanish meteorological agency issued major risk weather warnings for Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera islands on Wednesday, September 11. Heavy or very strong rain of more than 100 mm (4 in) are forecast over large areas, along with storms in the area. The storm is expected to head south and weaken by Saturday, September 14.

Advice

Individuals in the affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports, confirm flight reservations, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities, anticipate power outages and transportation and business disruptions, and remember that running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) is enough to knock over an adult - and never drive through flooded streets; floodwater may also contain wastewater and chemical products.
