Flash floods and overflowing rivers continue to bring misery to parts of Germany and France. The weather pattern that has been sitting over central Europe for a week has spawned daily storms. Slow-moving and large thunderclouds have brought hail, violent wind gusts and torrential rain to both plain and mountain.
The most recent areas to be hit were southern Germany and central France.
The German town of Simbach am Inn, in Bavaria and on the Austrian border, suffered badly as water came rushing through the streets. The torrent carried mud, trees, cars and any other debris picked up en route.
