Meurthe-et-Moselle had been placed on red “flood” alert in the afternoon by Météo-France, the same level of alert as for the neighboring department of Moselle.

“The significant rain observed led to a reaction from the Vezouze”, indicates Vigicrues in its bulletin, referring to an “exceptional flood in the Lunéville sector” where the rise in the water level “continues this Saturday”. “A reaction equivalent to the flood of 04/10/2006 is expected,” specifies Vigicrues.

The rise in water levels “continues this Saturday” and could reach the same heights as during the 2006 flood episode, specifies the organization. The water could reach 3.38 meters high overnight from Saturday to Sunday, while it was 0.77 meters on Friday.

“The flood wave should arrive at the end of the day, we are on a rather slow kinetics, these are not flash floods”, indicated the prefecture of Meurthe-et-Moselle.

A month of rain in less than 24 hours in Moselle

In the neighboring department of Moselle, the situation is “improving” according to the prefecture, despite the flooding of the Nied river which has caused the department to also be classified as red alert. If the rain has stopped and no rain alert persists, “136 firefighter interventions” were still in progress on Saturday, the prefecture said in a press release. The authorities, however, specify that “no victims or injuries” have been reported.

According to Vigicrues, “the exceptional rains observed caused a rapid rise in all the watercourses of the Nieds watershed”. The monitoring service reports a “direct and generalized threat to the security of people and property”.
