Heavy rain and thunderstorms: orange vigilance triggered for Guadeloupe

Orange alert for heavy rain and thunderstorms was triggered at the end of the day, this Wednesday, May 15 for the Guadeloupe archipelago. Floods are already being felt, particularly in Sainte-Rose.

Huge showers are heading straight for our archipelago, hence the orange alert for heavy rain and thunderstorms at 4:30 p.m. this Wednesday. A quasi-stationary rainy and unstable cell has formed since late this morning in the north of Basse-Terre like yesterday, Tuesday May 14.

Consequently, high accumulations are estimated in the same area as yesterday, that is to say part of the commune of Sainte-Rose near Sofaïa. A situation which is already being felt because certain areas of Sainte-Rose are already flooded.

Municipalities further south can also experience showers, but a priori without the same intensity.

Météo France issued a bulletin at the end of the day which indicates that clouds budding near or over towns bordering the Grand Cul-de-Sac marin, notably Les Abymes, Morne-à-l’Eau and of course Sainte-Rose are causing precipitation which can take a sustained, stormy and somewhat stationary character. During the first part of the next night, calmer weather reigns again across the entire Archipelago and showers are very rare. An improvement is therefore evident in the evening.
