after the storms, numerous damages noted from the north to the south of Saumur

Floods and hail caused damage almost everywhere in Saumur on Wednesday June 19. As we report in Gennes-Val-de-Loire, the violent, very localized storms of Wednesday June 19 caused numerous floods in several homes and businesses. If the town of Saumur was largely spared, the list is long from the north-east to the south-east of the department.

In the delegated commune of Broc (Noyant-Villages), near the border with Sarthe, some homes were flooded with almost a meter of water , testifies the mayor, Adrien Denis. Elsewhere in Noyant-Villages, many farmers’ crops suffered, sometimes devastated by the high amounts of water.

“It’s apocalyptic”

On the Longué-Jumelles side, rain and hail also caused a lot of damage. There are numerous reactions and testimonies on social networks. It’s apocalyptic says this resident of Jumelles. Crops are chopped up, crushed, trees fallen, some sheds blown away… houses flooded… Our garden is destroyed and our greenhouse tarpaulin acts as a sieve, the hailstones have pierced it.

This precipitation caused certain rivers to rise in the department. In particular the Oudon, the level and flow of which resulted in Maine-et-Loire being placed in red for flood risks this Thursday, June 20. The alert is yellow for thunderstorms and rain-flooding.
