Two Britons are said to be among at least five people killed as flash floods hit the Spanish island of Majorca overnight, emergency services said.
The Spaniard sprung into action after the town of Sant Llorenc des Cardassar, about 60 kilometres east of the island's capital Palma, was devastated by the rainstorm.
He said: "My solidarity and support goes out to the families and friends of victims and all the affected by these tragic floods".
Around 100 emergency rescue workers, three helicopters and a Hercules transport plane from the Spanish military have been sent from Valencia to help.Читайте также: Why You Absolutely Need to get a Flu Shot This Year
"My honest condolences to the relatives of the deceased and injured by the severe floods in San Llorenç".
A dry creek overflowed, creating a strong current of water and mud that buried cars and tore trees along the way, witnesses told Spain's TVE.
Swamped streets and piles of overturned cars, some of them along the guardrails of a major road, were a common sight in Sant Llorenc and other nearby towns on Wednesday.
Hundreds of displaced people are now being forced to shelter in emergency accommodation.
Muddy waters rushed down roads, houses were flooded and vehicles piled up on top of each other after the Mediterranean island was pounded with rain in just a few hours, video footage showed.
