Severe weather continues to bring flooding and damaging hail to Europe.
At least three people have died after severe storms battered southwest Germany.
The water raged through the town of Braunsbach, picking up cars and rocks and sending them hurtling through the narrow streets.
Residents said the streets were flooded by up to three metres of water, and some of the cars that floated past still had people inside.
Among the casualties was a 60-year-old man who became trapped in an underground car park when it flooded.
The storms that hit Germany are just the latest of storms which have been causing problems over Europe recently.
On Saturday, 11 people - 10 of them children - were injured after being struck by lightning during a birthday celebration at Parc Monceau in central Paris. The group had been taking shelter under a tree when the lightning struck.
On the same day, Poland was also hit by severe weather and one man was killed after he was struck by lightning while hiking down the Babia Gora mountain.
Over the next few days the storms will continue to rumble across Europe. The greatest risk of seeing some damaging hail or flooding rains today is over Poland and Belarus.
