Eight departments on alert

“Thunderstorms are circulating during the day this Thursday from New Aquitaine towards the Auvergne-Rhônes-Alpes region. They may already be quite marked, detail the forecasters.

"At the end of the afternoon, more intense storms are triggered from the southwest of the country to the Massif Central, particularly in the departments in orange where hail and heavy rain can be observed, and sometimes wind gusts approaching 100 km/h. The storms move during the night towards the Rhône-Alpes region, losing a little intensity, specifies the forecast site.
