At least eight people, including a young girl and an elderly woman, have died in Spain as a result of floods brought on by downpours, regional officials said. Four people died in the Andalusia region, including a woman in her 80s, a couple found in their car and a man who died of a heart attack. Some 500 people remained evacuated from their homes in the area early on Saturday after the torrential rains caused rivers to break their banks and flooded roads and railways, regional authorities said.
