Storm causes 10 minor incidents on island

Foto bombers arbre 100817When the storm and rains that began August 9 at 8.00pm subsided the morning of August 10, Formentera's fire brigade and local police were left dealing with 10 minor incidents across the island. Five involved flooded storefronts and another five concerned trees that had fallen on country roads and other arterials.

The electrical storm caused power failures and telephone cuts, which meant municipal offices in Sant Ferran and the Citizen Information Office (OAC) saw communication disrupted, affecting work throughout the day on August 10.

Eight sailboats run aground
Strong gusts of wind yesterday evening left eight boats stranded on the sand and rocks of Cala Saona. By the morning, all the ships on the sand had been hauled back out to sea, leaving just one—which had run aground on rocks—to be dealt with.

This morning in la Savina port, one sunken ship held up the passage of ferries carrying vehicles and had yet to be removed as of 1.00pm today. Formentera's firefighters and local police offered help to maritime rescue forces and Guardia Civil, which oversaw salvage operations.
