    19 dead in French Riveria flash floods

    19 people are thought to have died after more than six and a half inches of rain fell on the Cote d'Azur region in France in a couple of hours, Saturday. Many people were trapped in their vehicles in underground car parks as water swept streets in Nice, Antibes and Cannes.

    Emergency SAR operations are still underway.
