Monstrous waves enveloped entire apartment blocks in Mallorca, while parts of Catalonia were soaked with sea foam on the mainland, while Storm Gloria unleashed its ire in Spain.
Sea foam, caused by the stirring of organic matter in the water, flooded the streets of Tossa De Mar in Girona. Spanish authorities have declared red weather alerts in several provinces due to bad weather.
In the Balearic Islands, several eyewitnesses could not resist the fascination of nature and captured the terrible storm on their phones, some from the security of their apartments and cars, others … not so much.
Mallorca remains on orange and yellow alert until Thursday, when it faces rough seas and bad weather thanks to the Gloria storm.
Mallorca's supermarkets are short of items, as the rough sea prevented transport from the mainland. The island's reservoirs in the Tramuntana mountains are close to capacity, filling about 20% over a week.
The emergency services responded to about 322 incidents related to the Storm Gloria in the Balearic Islands, ranging from fallen trees to landslides and floods, with gusts reaching up to 84 km / h at times.
At the time of this writing, the number of deaths by Storm Gloria is four.
