Flash floods in southern France have left at least 20 dead and up to 200,000 homes without electricity.

Over 35 centimetres of rainfall in under 12 hours caused waters to rise swiftly by several metres on Tuesday night, leaving many unsuspecting residents in the southeast region of Vars, Cote d'Azur, trapped in their homes. Rescue operations have led to the discovery of 20 bodies, while several people are still missing.

We'll update this post throughout the day. If you have/ know of amateur videos or photos of the floods, send them to us.
