British tourists are being advised to stay indoors for their own safety on the Portuguese island of Madeira, where floods have killed at least 32 people.
The city of Funchal was among the worst affected areas by Saturday's floods and mudslides.
Eyewitnesses writing to BBC News described "roads... beginning to resemble rivers".
The Foreign Office said it had no reports of British casualties or injuries on the Atlantic island.
A spokesman for travel watchdog Abta said: "There are British holidaymakers on Madeira. We don't know how many at the moment but we do not believe it is a large amount.
"They are being advised to stay in their hotels. Representatives from tour operators are in the process of trying to visit them."
There was currently no plan to move the tourists off the island, the spokesman added.
