Real Life P-O Horror stories
We often have springtime rain here in the P-O, but none to match the 20th May 1868 in Molitg les Bains when 313 mm fell in one hour. According to the ‘bulletin météorologique’ records of 1900, a man sheltering from the rain near the River Têt was cut in half by a large rock dislodged from the mountains by the heavy rain. Half of his body was found under the rock and the other half 12km away near Eus. Not a drop a rain fell in Perpignan that day.
