Four departments have been placed in orange vigilance by Météo France.
Drôme and Ardèche are on orange alert for rains and floods. And the Gard and the Hérault are also on orange alert for rains and floods as well as for thunderstorms.
“From the first part of the night the situation will become more and more stormy from Languedoc to the Rhone Valley”, indicates Météo France in its bulletin. The most violent thunderstorms will be observed in the second part of the night.
Heavy precipitation is expected. Accumulations of 70 to 100 mm are possible in less than 3 hours in these four departments, Météo France alert.
Risk of major damage
These storms could “locally cause significant damage” and “lives and property can be locally endangered”, warns Météo-France, warning that “heavy rainfall is likely to affect human activities”, “some disturbances “which could affect rail transport in particular.
About ten days ago, violent thunderstorms and record rains had affected the Gard department, which had even been briefly placed in red vigilance, again for risk of thunderstorms and flooding. On that day, nine people were killed, victims of the swell, while wanting to swim despite the waves, two in the Aude, five in the Hérault and two in the Bouches-du-Rhône.
