Two foreign holidaymakers have died in a lightning strike at the same beach in Majorca.

One of the men died instantly at a beautiful white sand cove called Cala Mesquida near Capdepera in the north-east of the island.

The other victim, believed to be unknown to the first, started convulsing and died around 40 minutes afterwards despite efforts by emergency responders to revive him at the scene.

The drama occurred during a storm in the area and led to the popular beach, famed for its white sand and crystalline waters, being evacuated briefly to avoid a further tragedy.

Local reports said one of the men was killed after it began raining hard and he put his hand on the metal handle of his parasol to fold it away and leave the beach with his wife when lightning lit up the sky.


Europe experiences hottest summer in recorded history

Madrid, Spain.
The EU weather forecast report says the summer of 2022 beat all previous temperature records.

This year's heat waves and subsequent droughts resulted in the hottest summer in recorded European history, according to a report by the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) - an EU-funded Earth observation agency.

In its findings, which were published on Thursday, the C3S notes that average temperatures from June to August were 0.4 degrees Celsius above the previous hottest summer, which was recorded in 2021. Meanwhile, the temperatures in Europe in August beat the 2018 record by a whole 0.8 degrees Celsius.

Comment: The global warming alarmists would have us believe that these extreme temperatures are due to anthropomorphic causes. That's the scam. Extreme weather changes are indicative of planetary cycles that are trackable through history. Check out Sott's monthly Earth Changes video series to see more examples of the extreme weather events rocking the planet.
