On Monday 27 April 2015 flash floods hit the communes of Blonay and St-Légier situated above Montreux and Vevey in the Swiss canton of Vaud. Heavy rain fell for around one hour and water came rushing down streets without warning.
According to an RTS report one person interviewed had never seen anything like it before. Fortunately no one was hurt and the damage was limited to property. The town’s residents were busy last night cleaning up, and driving through Blonay the day after it was hard to see much evidence of the flooding from the outside. In this RTS video however, you can see that there was a lot of water.
