Flood struck Majorca on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday. It was a consequence of heavy rainfalls. Numerous rivers of the region burst their banks and caused serious damage to the inhabitants of San Lorenzo and nearby settlements.

Rafael Nadal, recovering from a knee injury in his native city, did not stay out of the natural disaster. Armed with rubber boots and a shovel, he was helping the volunteers. Moreover, all those affected were able to stay at his tennis academy in Manacor.
