The French meteorological agency (Météo France) has issued orange alerts - the second-highest on a four point scale - for three departments in the southwest for Thursday, June 8. The alerts concern the Gironde, Landes, and Pyrénées-Atlantiques departments, where thunderstorms and heavy rain are forecast, along with wind gusts up to 130 km/h (80 mph). The meteorological agency has warned of the possibility of flash floods.

Transport disruptions (air, rail, road) due to flooding or debris blocking roads or tracks may occur. Localized power outages are also possible.


Individuals in the above-mentioned areas are advised to keep abreast of weather forecasts and adhere to any orders issued by the local authorities. Remember that driving or walking through running water can be dangerous – 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult.
