  • Saint-Julien-de-Peyrolas southern France.- The bad weather caused large power cuts and a man who was working in a summer camp went

Hundreds of rescuers backed by helicopters moved out about 1,600 people, a lot of them campers, in three regions of southern France where heavy rain caused flash flooding and transformed rivers and streams into torrents, the interior minister said Thursday.

Hundreds of tourists have been whisked to safety in helicopters after flash floods submerged campsites in southern France.

The mayor of Bagnols, Jean-Yves Chapelet, told BFM-TV many Dutch tourists were among 350 campers evacuated there.

An elderly German man, who was helping supervise children at a campsite in southeast France, was missing on Thursday after being swept away by floodwaters, police said.

Rescuers believe the man sought shelter in his camper when fast-flowing water burst the banks of the nearby L'Ardeche River, but the vehicle was swept away.

However, Dousset, the top aide of the Gard administration, said no one knew for certain yet that the man was in his van at the time.

Four of the rescued German children were taken to the hospital suffering from hypothermia, officials said.

They were among 10 people treated for minor injuries.

He was the only person unaccounted for after a rescue operation at three campsites in the area, where a heatwave ended abruptly this week in storms that caused flash flooding.

Hundreds of firefighters backed by four helicopters were involved in the evacuation mission.

Numerous roads in the area remained cut off as night fell. Around 17,000 homes in the southwest and northeast were without power.
