Flooding in Bordeaux

The Spring tides are very high just now, with a coefficient of 117. 99 is considered exceptionally high. 

So much for that. 

The upshot is that several streets on the right bank around the Bastide area flooded yesterday and are flooded again this morning, and the fancy shops, restaurants and cafés down by the waterfront are faced with a walkway under about 6 inches of water.

This is because of the coincidence of very high tides linked with the recent persistent, constant, incessant, torrential rain.

Meanwhile in the Gard several people are missing following the downpours in that area.
