Rafael Nadal's home island of Mallorca was hit by deadly flash flooding on Tuesday. The world No. 1 jumped right in to help, cleaning up the ravaged muddy streets and assisting in any way he can. 

At least 10 deaths have been reported and residents of Sant Llorenc des Cardassar are sifting through debris and cleaning piles of mud that have covered their homes inside and out.

The Spanish island is also home to the Rafa Nadal Academy, which opened its doors to the flood victims. The Academy housed some 50 victims, while more than 200 residents of the area have been forced out of their homes. 

"Sad day in Majorca," Nadal wrote on Twitter. "My heartfelt condolences to the relatives of the deceased and injured by the serious floods in Sant Llorenc. As we did yesterday we offer today the facilities @rnadalacademy for all those affected that need accommodation."

When he's not on tour, Nadal spends the majority of his free time in Mallorca where he sails, spends time with friends and family, trains and rehabs.

Nadal is around to help this week because he missed Beijing and Shanghai with an injured knee. Roger Federer, who's safely through to the quarterfinals, sent Nadal and Mallorca a message: 

Novak Djokovic, who's also into the Shanghai quarterfinals, added his own message: 

Nadal is expected to return in Paris for the final ATP Masters 1000 of the year.
