      Several European countries hit by deadly rains and floods, at least 30 dead

      More than 30 people have died and dozens of people are missing in Germany and neighboring Belgium after heavy flooding turned streets into raging torrents, sweeping away cars and destroying buildings, news wires reported. Authorities in the western German region of Euskirchen said Thursday that eight deaths had been reported there in connection with the floods. Rescue operations were hampered by the fact that phone and internet connections were down in parts of the county, which is southwest of Cologne.
