Flash flooding hits Marseille, France

Parts of Marseille were hit by flash flooding after two months of rain fell in a matter of hours.

The eastern districts of Marseille, including the districts of Valmant, Les Olives, La Valentine and La Paume, were hardest hit by the flooding.

The Bouches du Rhône department has been placed on high alert for the flooding. Authorities said nearly two months’ worth of rain fell in two hours.

On Monday, Marseille Mayor Benoit Payan ordered residents to stay indoors amid fears that further rainfall could worsen the flooding.
