Heavy floods and torrential rains hit France and Italy hard
Two people died and 30 others were missing since torrential floods caused by torrential rains in northern Italy and western France, followed by a storm that destroyed a number of roads and bridges, and caused electricity cuts in some places.
There is massive damage on both sides of the border between the two countries, France and Italy, and relief personnel are deployed to provide assistance and search for missing persons, especially on the sides of the Tinda mountain crossing, which connects the Italian Alps region with the French province of Alp Maritim.
21 of the 22 missing have been found in this area.
In Italy, a 53-year-old civil defense officer died during the Aosta intervention, and the other died after his car fell into the Sicia River.
The head of the region said that this storm is the most dangerous since 1994, when the flooding of the River Bove Tarano killed 70 people.
In France, in the province of Alpes-Maritimes, relief teams reported the loss of eight people, including two members of relief teams and an elderly man, after floods washed away their home into a river. Information is not available for many other people.
It was not clear whether the French and Italian rescue teams, working jointly, counted the missing themselves twice.
