Freak floods on the Riviera this week

Apparently 40+ years since the last time something like this happened – all the beach restaurants washed away in 30ft high very powerful waves.  Coast roads all closed and damage to any vehicles parked on the coast roads right along the Cote d’Azur.  Not very “azur” this week!  Have a look at these photos and video:

But, weather scheduled to be great again this weekend in preparation for the Cannes film festival and the arrival of 200,000 show-biz personalities, all associated business people, photographers, and gawkers.   The beach restaurants are racing to complete all their rebuilding, re-equipping and redecorating to be ready for the onslaught.  Great excitement.
