VIDEO: ‘Mini-tsunami’ hits tourist beaches in Majorca and Menorca
A 5ft-high wave has wreaked devastation at popular holiday hotspots in Majorca and Menorca, flooding coastal roads, bars and terraces.
The “mini-tsunami” crashed into Ciutadella on the west coast of Menorca on Monday morning, leaving local beaches flooded, reports the Daily Mirror.
The meteotsunami - a tsunami-like wave of meteorological origin - also hit beaches in Majorca less than 40 miles from the Love Island villa.
There have been no reports of injuries. The incident occurred in the early hours, when the streets and beaches were still largely empty.
