Agen, in Lot-et-Garonne, was the victim of flooding on the night of Wednesday 8 to Thursday 9 September. The images are impressive.

Streets flooded with water, vehicles submerged and houses flooded. During the night of Wednesday 8 to Thursday 9 September, torrential rains fell on Agen, in Lot-et-Garonne. In two hours, the equivalent of two months of precipitation was recorded. An absolute record for this city, according to Météo-France.

In places, the water has risen up to two meters. Many residents and motorists were surprised. “The water rose super fast. By the time I understood, the car had shut down, engine flooded”, says a man. Throughout the night, 300 firefighters were mobilized for nearly 130 interventions. For now, no casualties is not to be deplored. The recession has started and the next stormy episode expected on Thursday should be less violent.
