Belgian authorities say that two people have drowned after severe flooding has submerged the southwestern region of Beaumont.
The first victim is a 72 year old woman who drowned overnight after her husband lost control of their vehicle in the rain. Meanwhile, a man who was on his way home was found just a few metres away.
Consistent rains have inundated the country for days and have caused severe flooding. The army has been called in to assist with evacuations.
