Two horses take refugee on higher ground around a farm cottage, after heavy flooding near the town of Agde. More than 27,000 people were evacuated in the region after a week of torrential rains and floods that claimed at least six lives. The hardest hit regions were those of the Gard, around the city of Nîmes and the Hérault around Montpellier.
