As the atmospheric conditions remain very humid and unstable, they favour the formation of active and thunderstorm clouds over our region. Heavy showers have persisted mainly in the southeast of the island since Friday morning.
This is what emerges from a special press release issued by the Vacoas weather station issued this Friday afternoon.
The rainfall recorded until 2 p.m. this afternoon indicates that it is the region of Plaisance that was the most watered with 375 mm of rain in ten hours, between 4 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The village of Riche-en-Eau, for its part, collected 178.8 mm of rain during this same period. While in Mon-Bois, there was 34 mm.
Grand-Bassin recorded a rainfall of 20.4 mm. While Vacoas collected 10.3 mm of rain.
According to the weather service, the weather will remain cloudy and overcast with showers mainly in the South, South-East and on the Central Plateau. Heavy, short-lived showers will cause water to accumulate and flash floods in some areas.
Practical advice :
Avoid areas subject to water accumulation such as near rivers and other flooding streams and areas prone to flooding.
Be very careful when travelling while taking into account that visibility could be considerably reduced during showers and due to the presence of pockets of fog.
In the event of thunderstorms, avoid the plains, sea trips and take shelter under the trees.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
