Torrential rains swept the Cote d'Azur, southeast France on October 3, 2015, causing heavy flooding across the riviera. According to media reports, 16 people have been reported dead and at least 15 people went missing by the early afternoon of October 4. 
Strong rainfalls hit the Alpes-Maritimes region on October 3 and triggered violent flash floods across the Cote d'Azur. About 180 mm (7 inches) of rainfall was reported to fall in Cannes, in only 3 hours, which equals to two average months of rainfall for this region, France Bleu-Azur local radio reported.
