Rains and floods hit Mallorca after the heat wave. Here there has been a collision between a cruise ship and an oil tanker due to the wind. Northern Italy has also been affected. Cyclone Poppea seeks to relieve the heat, but the fires in Greece persist.
After the heat wave, heavy rains have arrived on the island of Mallorca causing flash floods. A cruise ship had to enter urgently after colliding with an oil tanker due to the wind. The roads became rivers through which it was impossible to navigate.
In mainland Spain, the rains over the weekend reached record levels. In some areas of Catalonia, more than 100 liters of water per square meter accumulated. Firefighters had to rescue a person who had been trapped in his car under a bridge.
Torrential rains and strong winds also hit northern Italy, first in Lombardy on Saturday, with storms uprooting trees and damaging roofs, and in Liguria on Sunday. In Genoa, the storms surprised the citizens.
Cyclone Poppea, coming from northern Europe, advances through the country with the intention of ending the summer heat wave.
However, Greece continues to burn, although the fire that broke out this Saturday on the Cycladic island of Andros, probably caused by lightning, was brought under control on Sunday. Firefighters remain at key points as a precaution due to strong winds blowing in the area.
