Thunderstorms: nine departments alert

The heat is part of the storms themselves that linger over the country. The north-eastern France on Thursday will be affected by a stormy episode that could occasionally be violent in the evening. New departments have been placed in orange alert by France weather from Thursday 16 pm until 7:00 Friday: Departments of Franche-Comté region and the Allier (03), Côte-d’Or ( 21), Nièvre (58), the Puy-de-Dôme (63) and the Saône-et-Loire (71). Such storms can be accompanied by hail, strong winds (exceeding 100 km / h locally) and intense rainfall. Between that night and Friday morning, these storms will stagnate in the northeast, giving durable and heavy rains, raising fears of flooding , the greatest caution in these regions. The plain of Alsace will be affected to a lesser extent, but we must also be vigilant.
