Dozens Dead or Missing in French Riviera Floods

Powerful rainstorms and flooding along the Cote d’Azur have killed at least 13 people and left at least 10 others missing, said local report quoting local officials.

The city of Cannes received about 60mm of rain per hour, with a total of about 220mm recorded since Saturday, while the neighboring city of Nice received an estimated tenth of its average annual rainfall over a 36-hour period.

“‘Some cars were carried off into the sea,’ said Cannes Mayor Davis Lisnard, describing water levels reaching halfway up car doors and trees left uprooted on the city’s main drag,” according to a report.

“We have rescued a lot of people, and we must now be vigilant against looting,” he added.

“Camp sites are under water, and two helicopters are circling to ensure the public’s security, as some people are stuck on the roof of their caravans,” according to the fire brigade.
