All in the group, who are from the city of Leverkusen, are all accounted for and safe.

A 70-year-old German man helping to supervise children at a summer camp at Saint-Julien-de-Peyrolas in Gard was feared to have been swept away by floodwaters along with his van yesterday.

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.

The missing German was supervising the children at the camp.

A search was underway for him. Five campsites in the area have been evacuated'.

The worst-hit areas are Gard, Ardèche and Drôme.

"No one has suitcases".

Hundreds of firefighters and police took part in the rescue operations, using helicopters to help spot affected campsites and carry out some people. Authorities warned that the flooding would take time to recede and urged people to be vigilant. A sizzling heatwave across Spain has left 10 people dead in a week.

A spokesman for Gard Prefectures said: "It is hoped the flooding will reach its peak by around 11pm on Thursday".

Officials said 119 children in Saint-Julien-de-Peyrolas were sent to an emergency shelter.

Pictures showed rescuers wading through flooded campsites with damage to tents, caravans and bicycles.

The south and central region of France have seen weeks of blazing sunshine replaced by dramatic storms, turning dry, baked campsites into muddy quagmires. Around 17,000 homes in the southwest and northeast were without power.
