Heavy rains continue devastation in Switzerland and France

Several people have been injured by falling trees, and trapped under debris at the Swiss Federal Gymnastics tournament in Biel in Switzerland.

For the second time in a week, participants had to flee as storm winds of 130 kilometres an hour swept though the site. Last Thursday, strong winds forced the opening ceremony to be cancelled.

In south west France, French President, Francois Hollande, visited the village of Saint Beat, one of many devastated by floods.

The region has been hit by heavy rains over the last three days, causing flash floods which have killed three people.

The President announced on his visit that the area would be classed as a ‘state of natural disaster’ and that everything would be done to get it back to normal.
