Lourdes badly hit by flash floods




I tried the link, but all I got is a video of chanters singing Ave Maria to Mary in the grotto.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it floods, they have some low lying areas, but the shrine is up on a hill and should be safe. Hope no pilgrims or residents were harmed.


It worked for me. That’s a lot of water!

You could try this direct YouTube link.


Moving pretty fast too and it looks like it is still raining. They might want to move that camera.



I see it now. I feel bad for those whose pilgrimages were canceled. Hope the water doesn’t leave too much mess.


The River Gave flowing by the Grotto is still at a very high level .


The clean up in the Domain .
