It appears that many of the tornadoes in the Balearics may not be associated with supercells, but the most noteworthy events seem to occur with supercell thunderstorms.
In spite of the small existing tornado database for the Balearic Islands (8 years), this area is reveals to be a real "tornado alley." The most violent observed tornado has attained F3 intensity, but the most frequent intensity is F1.

 Catalan Language

Since democracy was restored in 1977, the Balearics have been ruled by pan-Spanish (i.e., non-nationalistic) parties, which, while not opposed to introducing the Catalan language at school, are not particularly eager to do so at a fast pace either.
It is implemented in Catalonia through the 1998 law on language policy (which replaces the 1983 law), in the Balearic Islands through the 1986 law on language policy and in Valencia through the 1983 law on the use and teaching of Valencian.

Since the convection develops over the Mediterranean Sea near the Balearics where the low-level FQ was favorable, the dominant contribution to FQ overall for the deep convection with this event is apparently associated with warm advection at low levels, like the cases shown by Maddox and Doswell (1982).
