Heavy rain triggered mudslides and flash flooding in the Swiss Alps on Monday. Authorities are searching for a man and a girl missing since Sunday, after their car was swept away in a flash flood. Police in the southern canton (state) of Valais said Monday they have little hope of finding the 37-year-old man and the six-year-old... girl alive. More than 70 rescuers including a helicopter crew searched for them through the night. Videos posted online showed a wave of water, mud and debris crashing down the Losentze River near the village of Chamoson.
