Many drivers found themselves trapped by the waters in a few seconds. At the same time, three colleges were affected and four schools, the equivalent of 350 students, had to be evacuated: the directors asked parents to come and pick up their children because the ceilings of all the classrooms took on water. Several stores, in the city center and on the outskirts, also had to close due to infiltration problems. Among them, the But store, forced to lay off its 20 employees. The firefighters were called a hundred times in less than an hour. Cellars, flooded basements, house hit by lightning: they intervened almost 80 times because of the storm. A total of 1,500 people were deprived of electricity. Finally, many public establishments were damaged by the rains, such as the Aquasud indoor swimming pool. “Tropical” According to Météo-France, this stormy episode is due, in particular, to the conjunction of accumulated hot air and altitude winds. In less than an hour, 45.9 millimeters of rain fell. This is almost what waters the department during a classic month of June (58 mm). It was mainly between 10:24 and 10:30 a.m. that the rain was intense: 11 millimeters of water in six minutes. “It was tropical”, comment the meteorologists. “We are on a fifty-year episode”, explains Valérie Pitous, chief of staff of the mayor of Agen, Jean Dionis. However, we remain far from the episode of the night of September 8 to 9, 2021, when more than 100 millimeters of water fell on the city in a few hours. 45.9 mm of water, however, is enough to saturate the networks. And to once again impact certain inhabitants of the Jasmin district, in particular of rue des Charretiers, already hard hit in September. “Twice in less than a year is too much. We can’t take it anymore,” sighs Françoise, armed with her broom. Its furniture and appliances have again been put to the test. “We had just finished the work after last year’s bad weather. “This Thursday, the department was on yellow alert, and a priori, nothing so violent was announced. “The forecasts did not tick the boxes of an orange alert with the winds that go with it, and in a geographical area closer to that of the department than the city”, further specify the specialists of Météo-France. The phenomenon was indeed particularly localized in the city-prefecture. The air mass should cool off from this Friday, predicts Météo-France. This announces an almost autumnal weather on Saturday. With temperatures that would not exceed, for Lot-et-Garonne, 20 to 22 degrees. The trailing sky, after the disturbance, should stagnate for a few days, “but with a return of good weather, not too hot, around 29 degrees”, from Tuesday June 28 or Wednesday June 29.
