12 days on and the flood water remains.

20-08-2013
Some parts of Majorca are still under water following the storms on September 6, but in s'Aranjassa, on the outskirts of Palma, residents are under siege from a plague of mosquitoes. Eleven days since the storm, residents in the farming community, are up in arms because of the lakes of stagnant water. The 130 litres of rain per square metre which fell on the area and settled in the fields, have attracted the mosquitoes. The community has been waiting for police and council help over the past few days so that farmers can start draining the fields. But as they wait, the fine weather and high temperatures have served to fuel the plague of mosquitoes. Many of the local residents are worried about infections and an epidemic and everybody is having to make sure that all doors and windows are closed at all times.
