At least five people died on Wednesday in flooding across France and Germany, authorities said.

Four people died after a flood hit the German town of Simbach am Inn in Bavaria on Wednesday. Three people had been trapped in a house as the flood swept the town, while a woman was found dead nearby, according to the BBC. 

The town was one of the worst hit as torrential rain spread across central Europe. In France, an 86-year-old woman was killed.
