In Chamoson, falling rocks closed several roads, trapping some cars. A family of tourists in Jaun in Fribourg lost their car when it was washed away. The family is safe after being helicoptered off the mountain. 

Valais fire services say they were called out continuously throughout the night, mainly due to flooded cellars, especially around Sion.
