Storms Hit Limousin
Many parts of the region were under water this week as storms and flash floods drifted around the Limousin. The fire service was called to many incidents as cellars flooded and gardens washed away. Some of the worst affected areas were in the Creuse. Jean-Marie Sachet mayor of La Celle Dunoise said he had seen nothing like the storms of Tuesday afternoon in the 26 years he has lived in the area. Some streets in the commune became rivers with 30 cm deep water flowing along them. The campsite which was due to open on the first of June has been completely washed away and debris is lying on roads throughout the area. Mr sachet says the commune does not have the funds to meet the clear up bill and has approached the prefecture for emergency funding.
