The services of Météo France have placed Corsica on vigilance yellow thunderstorms until 10 p.m. this Tuesday, August 24.

Thus, faced with the “risk of sudden flooding” and the “still significant tourist frequentation”, the prefect of Corse-du-Sud issued an order exceptionally prohibiting access to the canyons for the entire day.
