France experienced more violent thunderstorms overnight particularly in the north and east of the country.
In Alsace, 40 mms of rain fell in an hour and up to 9000 lightning flashes were recorded. In the Pas-de-Calais, up to 50 mms of rain fell in a few minutes.
This left many in the area dealing with the mudslides and flooding caused by the storms.
This month of May has been the stormiest on record in France for the past 20 years with over 200,000 lightning flashes recorded.
More stormy weather is expected on Sunday and throughout next week.
