We are unable to join the help, fully mobilized on the floods in Lot-et-Garonne.

Agen has suffered an incredible and dramatic flood this evening. The storm was indeed announced by Météo France. Scheduled from 4 p.m., it was finally at 8 p.m. that the bad weather occurred. Exceptional quantities of water fell on the city from 8 p.m., and this deluge did not stop until around 10 p.m.

For two hours, thousands of liters fell on the city, overflowing the gutters and gutters. On Boulevard de la République, a section reserved for pedestrians, two bubbling streams flowed thickly. Gutters ripped open under the Cornieres were transformed into veritable geysers. We will have seen passers-by wearing plastic bags trying to cross these runoff anyhow …

Faced with this sudden disaster, the city of Agen activated a crisis unit, led among other officials by the chief of staff of the mayor Florent Canu. “I am currently rue des Charretiers,” he explains, “where the situation is difficult. We have about a meter of water. On avenue du Général-de-Gaulle, the firefighters are trying to evacuate the water. with pumps. We also have a serious flooding problem on the rue Ernest-Sarrou, there the level is very important.

The situation is also critical on the boulevard Scaliger, where an inhabitant, plunged in the dark is desperate: “It’s a disaster, the water has streamed on the boulevard, is engulfed in the garden, and I have 15 cm of water on the first floor. My cellar is totally flooded, I think my boiler is lost. I am in the dark, without electricity, and the firefighters do not answer my phone calls. “
