Les orages et la grêle ont fait des dégâts notamment dans le Bergeracois

On Thursday, June 2, hailstones the size of a bay ball fell in the Bergerac area. Dordogne has been on a yellow alert since Wednesday, June 1 and thunderstorms have hit the Berkeley area.

In Gordon, Mayor Pascal Deltil explains, some houses were flooded. He said it was not possible to say how much rain fell as rain gauges were overflowing in many places.

In Lalinde, Mary Hall Gerrard, the first deputy to Town Hall, says there was a lot of damage to cars, windows and especially the school. Residents’ garden sheds were also partially damaged.

In Bergerac, Mayor Jonathan Prioleaud explains that this Thursday, June 2, the streets were closed by city services because leaves and branches fell on the road and could not absorb much of the rain. Berkeley’s Town Hall plans to use the drone to tour its buildings during the day.

According to our information, some parcels of vineyards have been affected by hail.

Other storms are expected over the weekend, according to Météo France.
