It brings the number of victims of these exceptional floods to seven.

The body of a septuagenarian found on Saturday was identified as being that of an inhabitant of Saint-Martin-Vésubie, who disappeared during bad weather in the Alpes-Maritimes, we learned on Monday.

The body of the retiree, who disappeared with his wife on October 2 in Saint-Martin-de-Vésubie, was found in the river bed on Saturday, according to Nice-Matin.

Eleven people are still missing after these devastating floods in the Vésubie and Roya valleys, according to the Nice prosecutor's office.

A difficult balance sheet to establish

Three weeks after the tragedy, the balance sheet remains difficult to establish, in particular because of bodies exhumed from cemeteries which were washed away by the waves.

This situation complicates the work of the gendarmes to establish the real victims of the recent bad weather.
