Thursday May 2, 2024, Eure firefighters saved a flock of sheep and lambs threatened by rising waters from La Charentonne to Chamblac, in Eure. They were identified using a drone.

Following heavy rains on the night of May 1st to 2nd, around a hundred ewes and lambs found themselves threatened by rising waters in a meadow in Chamblac, in Eure.

Heavy rains caused flooding in the departments of Orne, Calvados and Eure.

In the Eure, bad weather caused the Charentonne to overflow, endangering the lives of animals who were almost trapped in their meadow.

It was with the help of a drone that the herd was spotted by the Eure firefighters, who then intervened. to secure the herd on a high point.

The intervention led to the closure of the D107 road for several hours. A diversion had been put in place.

Earlier in the week, the Seine-Maritime firefighters intervened near Rouen to rescue a lamb stuck in a stormwater pipe.
