In southern France and northern Italy, several people died after the flood. The rainstorms in southern Europe also caused a collapse of the bridge near the coastal town of Savona (Italy). Heavy rains hit northern Italy and southern France over the weekend, killing at least four people. A 30-meter section of the highway collapsed in a viaduct near the flooded Italian coastal town of Savona, leaving cars at the bottom of the remainder of the road. Rescue services and dogs were used to find potential victims, but no one had yet been found. In the northern Italian region of Piedmont, a 52-year-old woman was found dead on Sunday, which was missing after the bursting of a riverbank. Italian media said that two more people in the car were able to escape in time.
