Floods kill at least 32 on resort island Madeira

At least 32 people have been killed by floods and mudslides caused by an unusually violent rainstorm on the Portuguese resort island of Madeira, officials said on Saturday.

 

 "We have confirmed 32 dead, but we're still trying to figure out how many people are missing, so the final death toll can be higher still," said a duty official at the civil protection service in Madeira's capital Funchal. (Reuters)
