We were there for the weekend and left at 1pm yesterday. The rain had started at around 5pm on Sunday and it rained all night getting heavier all the time. It was completely unrelenting when we drove to the airport but was almost non existent as we approached Palma. We took off in calm conditions.

Looking at the web cam this morning and the storm was still raging in the Port.
