1,600 persons have been evacuated in France after parts of the country were hit by floods.
Many of the evacuees were campers. It is presently being reported that a 70-year-old man who was looking after a group of children at a campsite is unaccounted for.
Grad, Ardeche and Drome are the worst effected areas, and more than 400 firemen and four helicopters are assisting in a rescue operation.
The floods followed a heatwave in France and in several other European countries.
