Torrent of floodwater washes away cars in Belgium

Parts of Belgium were devastated by new flooding on Saturday (July 24), local media reported, with torrents of water sweeping away cars.

Belgium's French-speaking region of Wallonia was hit the hardest by a renewed deluge coming only weeks after 37 people died in flash flooding.

Video showed a rush of floodwater ravaging the town Dinant and carrying cars down its streets.

The Belgian weather service RMI predicted further rain and issued thunderstorm warnings for Sunday (July 25).
