Nadal invited people affected by the disaster to take shelter at his tennis academy in nearby Manacor.

"Our most honest condolences to the loved ones of the victims of the serious floods in San Llorenc", he wrote.

The couple, named locally as Anthony and Delia Green from the south of Scotland, are understood to have died along with taxi driver Juan Sillero when their auto was swept away by a torrent of water near the coastal resort of S'Illot.

Trees were torn down as floodwaters swept many cars and trucks into piles of metal and streets were buried under mounds of mud.

The regional government in Majorca called an emergency meeting on Wednesday to coordinate rescue efforts, with military units sent to the area to help. Officials said more than 600 people from rescue and medical crews were posted at make-shift emergency relief centers that had been set up in sports halls.

The missing child had been in a vehicle in Sant Llorenc with his mother, who was one of those killed, a spokesman for the central government's representative in the Balearic Islands said.

Emergency teams gather at the main road of Sant Llorenc, the town hardest hit by the downpours located 60 kilometers (40 miles) east of Mallorca's capital, Palma, Spain, on Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018.
