Due to the arrival of depression Frederico at the Gulf of Saint-Malo, the department of Puy-de-Dôme and 67 other departments are placed on yellow alert for wind phenomena. Vigilance partly lifted for Friday.
In its bulletin published this Thursday morning, Météo-France indicates that 5 departments are placed on orange alert for flood phenomena, but also wind, for this day. In detail, the North, Pas-de-Calais, Vendée and Charente-Maritime are affected by the first phenomenon, Puy-de-Dôme by the second.
As Vigicrues announced, five rivers are still placed on orange alert in the departments affected by flood phenomena. These are the Lys, the Hem, the Canche, the Charente and the Sèvre Niortaise.
Frederico depression approaches
Note that with the exception of a large area in the southwest, 75 departments are placed on yellow alert, including 67 for violent wind phenomena.
This predominantly yellow color is the consequence of the appearance of depression Frederico, which for the days of Thursday and Friday must move from the Gulf of Saint-Malo towards Germany. This depression will cause lasting rain in Hauts-de-France and gales, sometimes strong, in the English Channel.
Vigilance will once again be required for Friday since, for the moment, four departments are planned to be on orange vigilance: Nord, Pas-de-Calais, Vendée and Charente-Maritime. Puy-de-Dôme would return to green.
