    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.

    There may be a catastrophe but it hasn't stopped the spirit of small-scale entrepreneurship I see. That guy in the photo above is one of the Riveria's many street traders. He's obviously been selling umbrellas until the flooding got too much.
