CAPTION ONLY: DEATH TOLL FROM FRENCH FLOODS RISES TO 38

Emergency workers look for bodies at Vaison La Romaine, southern France. Searchers dug two more bodies from the mud Saturday, raising the death toll to 38 after the country's deadliest floods on record. About 40 people are still missing. New storms killed two people and left another missing as water surged over the banks of the Sals River and destroyed a house. The southeastern region of Vaucluse is preparing for more destruction.
