    Morocco: Flash floods leave at least 30 dead, dozens missing

    'Flash flooding in southern Morocco has reportedly killed at least 31 people, with many others still missing.

    Heavy storms have swept across several regions including tourist hub Marrakesh, where torrential rain destroyed many mud homes on Sunday.

    Roads and highways were blocked off, making it hard for emergency crew to reach people.

    It was forecast that more than 100 millimetres of rain would fall, but nothing has been done. They just waited for the catastrophe to unfold.

    The "exceptional" storms also swept across the regions of Guelmim, Agadir and Ouarzazate, and a search was under way for the missing, the authorities said.'

    French language article and video at the link, which is quite horrifying. So many people are standing on a bridge that looks to be in acute danger of being swept away. I wouldn't go near it. I don't know if those people near the car in the middle of that raging water survived.
