Monica Storm: A family was wiped out in France – Waves 2.5 meters “suffered” people in Spain

Tragic is the account in and Spain of what the Monica storm caused in its passage. At the same time, an EU report warns about the dramatic consequences of climate change in Europe. The account of the floods in southeastern France rose today to four dead, with the discovery of a man’s body. On the outskirts of the village of Dion, southeastern France, north of Nim, a man’s body was found. In the area was ignored the fate of three people – one father of both his children. The mother, aged 40, had been rescued before the vehicle, in which she was on and on a sinking bridge, drifted from the overflowing river. The fate of the two children, aged 4 and 13, is still ignored, as is the fate of a man in the county of Ardes. The Monica storm was accompanied the weekend by strong wind gusts and significant rainfall in European countries. DIRECT. Les recherches ont repris pour retrouver 4 personsnes disparues en Ardèche et dans le Gard. Attente pénible pour les proches. In Spain, three people were swept away by the waves and their fate was ignored, authorities announced today, which continue to investigate. According to sea rescue services, two of the three missing persons are minors. They drifted on Friday afternoon while fishing on a beach on the island of Great Canaria. The third missing man drifted the day before yesterday, Saturday, while swimming on a Barcelona beach. Authorities had issued that day a warning because of the storm’s bad weather Monica, with waves reaching a height of 2.5 meters. Shock report on climate change Europe is in danger of suffering “destructive” consequences from climate change if it does not take urgent and decisive measures to address the risks, today warns a new EU analysis. Southern European regions are at greater risk, as the European Environment Agency (EEA) warns in its first report on the climate risks facing the continent. Risks include fires, water shortages and their impact on agricultural production, while coastal areas are threatened by floods, erosion and seawater penetration. “Many of these risks have already touched critical levels and could be devastating without urgent and decisive actions,” the Agency stresses. This does not mean that northern Europe is not experiencing the negative effects that has been seen from flooding in Germany and forest fires in Sweden in recent years. “The extreme heat, drought, forest fires and floods, as recorded in recent years, will worsen in Europe even with the most optimistic global warming scenarios and affect living conditions across the continent”, warns the ESA. The report records 36 climate-related risks in Europe, 21 of which require more direct actions and eight are “particularly urgent”. At the top of the list are the risks to ecosystems, especially coastal and marine. For example, the combination of fuels as well as acidification and reduction of oxygen and other factors due to human activity – such as pollution and eutrophication (S.T.A.: Eutrophication is the environmental phenomenon in which the excessive increase in nutrient concentration implies the reduction of dissolved oxygen in water and consequently the deterioration of biodiversity in it) and fisheries threaten marine ecosystems, the report notes. European governments and populations should recognize the risks unanimously and agree that their priority will be to do more and faster, the EEA concludes.
