COLD DROP: One Week On, Death Toll Rises To 4

The body of a man swept away last week by flash floods in Catalonia, was found yesterday (Tuesday)

The body has been indentified as that of the man who reportedly dissappeared when his mobile home was swept away during the flash floods whilst he was inside.

The body discovered now raises to four the number of people who died when storms lashed northeastern Spain.

The first victim was a man found on October 22 in Caldes d’Estrac, north of Barcelona, while another man’s body was found two days later at Tarragona port where the Francoli enters the sea.

A third body, that of a homeless man, was found on Monday although he was not one of those listed as missing.

Southern France was also hit by major flooding which left three people dead, one of them a British woman.

Last week’s flooding and landslides forced the closure of nearly 50 roads and halted train services, as well as forcing the diversion of 37 flights, mostly in Mallorca.
