Woman killed as flash flooding hits Lourdes

Flash floods in south-western France have killed an elderly woman as the inundated grotto at the Catholic pilgrimage site of Lourdes remains closed for a second day.

The woman in her 70s was washed away overnight by the floodwaters after getting out of her submerged car at Saint Beat near Lourdes, the local prefecture said.




  1. Purely instantaneously and from the gut, I can’t help but wonder: Given some of the sacriligeous abuses inflicted upon this sacred site over recent decades, could there be a Message in there somewhere?

  2. Epic Biblical flooding, not seen in 500 years in Europe!
    Kind of crazy, weather patterns! Could this be “The beginning of Sorrows?”
