Dramatic footage has emerged of what’s purported to be a Le Boat cruiser fleet as its carried away in swollen rover waters amid severe flooding in southwestern France.

A video compilation posted on social media shows how at least one vessel was lost as it capsized after hitting a bridge, while another was apparently destroyed at a weir.

Severe flooding was reported throughout the wider region of Lot-et-Garrone after the country was hit by Storm Justine earlier this week and experienced days of torrential rain.

As Euronews reports, the town of Meilhan-sur-Garrone was almost entirely submerged as the Garrone, a major river in the region, burst its banks.
