Rescuers still searching for missing child and two foreigners — MALLORCA FLOODING DISASTER

Forecasters said around 20cm of rain fell in four hours

Two more bodies were recovered in the town of S'illot, an emergency services spokeswoman who wasn't authorized to be named in media reports told The Associated Press.

Madrid deployed military units to the Balearic Island to assist emergency workers as they searched for missing persons and cleared the streets of debris.

Locals only had a precious few seconds to react before a torrent descended.

At least nine people are believed to have died when torrential rainstorms deluged the town of Sant Llorenc, about 40 miles east of the capital, Palma, on Tuesday evening.

Emergency services in the archipelago updated information regularly on Twitter, sending out tweets in Spanish, Catalan, English and German in an indication of the prevalence of tourists and foreign residents on the island.

He helped out for "several hours", said Sanchez, who is from Sant Llorenc. The boy's sister survived.

They numbered six men and four women.

Two British nationals are among those among the confirmed dead.

Mr Green, 77, and his wife, 75, were being driven to a hotel in Cala Bona when the taxi was caught by the floodwaters, Diario de Mallorca reported. The driver, Juan Sillero, was also killed.

His body was found a distance away from where the taxi was found with the two Britons inside.

Video footage showed cars turned upside down, damaged houses and trees in the road. The Spaniard holds the all-time record of 10 straight years of winning at least one major. "Look at this clock, it was worth over 2,000 euros", Riera told AFP as he pointed to an antique wall clock covered in mud. The regional government of the Balearic Islands declared three days of mourning.

"We had to throw out furniture and are trying to save everything we can", said Cati Morey, who has a beauty salon in Sant Llorenc.

Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal, who is from the affected area in Majorca, was among the volunteers helping with the cleanup operation.

He promised financial help for affected zones. The biggest numbers came from Germany and Britain.
