Torrential rain swept through the southern Spanish regions of Andalucia and Murcia on Friday, washing away cars and forcing hundreds of residents to evacuate their homes.
Among the dead are two children who were found drowned in a car in Puerto Lumbreras in Murcia, and an elderly man who was found dead near the town's cemetery, Spanish national radio reported.
