The Sud-Gironde was relatively spared on Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 June. The thunderstorms were mainly concentrated in an area between Bordeaux and Libourne, such as Latresne, for example. “The firefighters of the Sud-Gironde group intervened only a few times on Thursday evening, in the municipalities of Lestiac and Paillet”, situates Lieutenant-Colonel Florensan. The water rose rapidly in three houses before descending immediately. On this sector of the right bank, mudslides are to be deplored. Part of the IntermarchÃ © de Langoiran car park has been covered.
The evening was more eventful the day before, in the Martillac, Saint-Selve and Saint-Morillon sectors. The firefighters intervened about thirty times. As with every episode of heavy rain, the Breyra business area was flooded. “100 millimeters of water fell in one hour, the stream overflowed as in 2016 and 2019”, sighs Mayor Dominique Claverie, calling out to the Community of municipalities: “As long as the work is not carried out on this river, the activity zone will be in danger.” The Chemin de la Canave and the Place du Cordon-dâ ???? or were covered with water. Friday morning June 18, firefighters were still pumping water.
Traffic was disrupted on several roads in the great South-Gironde, due to tree falls.
