Heavy rain claimed 5 Lives in Europe

Paris: 5 people have died as a result of the terrible storms and torrential rains that hit France, Switzerland, and Italy this past weekend, according to local authorities on Sunday.

Three individuals in their 70s and 80s kicked the bucket in France’s northeastern Aube district on Saturday when a tree squashed the vehicle they were going in during savage breezes, the neighborhood authority told AFP.

It added that a fourth passenger was in critical condition.
In adjoining Switzerland, two individuals have passed on and a third is absent after heavy rains set off an avalanche in the southeast, police in the Italian-talking canton of Ticino said.

Two vacationing women from the Alpine region were identified as the deceased, according to the local newspaper La Regione.

Nearly 70 more people were being evacuated from a holiday camp in the village of Mogno, and emergency services were evaluating the best way to evacuate 300 people who had arrived in Peccia for a football tournament.

Police had previously stated that the adverse weather was making rescue work particularly challenging, as several valleys were inaccessible and disconnected from the electricity network.

Additionally, a portion of the canton was without water, according to the federal alert system.

In the western canton of Valais, the common security administrations said “a few hundred” individuals were cleared and streets shut down after the Rhone and its feeders spilled over in various areas.

Outrageous precipitation additionally struck southeastern Switzerland last end of the week, resulting in one dead and causing significant harm.
Internet users shared images of spectacular floods and swollen rivers rushing down mountain slopes in the Aosta Valley in northern Italy.

Scientists say that human-caused climate change is making extreme weather events like floods and storms more severe, frequent, and longer lasting.
