Storm Brendan, which has been shaking Ireland and Great Britain for a few hours, will be felt in Brittany with gusts exceeding 100 km / h this Monday evening and Tuesday during the day. In its latest bulletin, Météo France placed the departments of Finistère, Morbihan and Loire-Atlantique in orange alert "waves-submersion".
The # Brendan storm generated extremely strong winds at sea during its very rapid digging on the Atlantic on Sunday. These winds have raised very strong waves which, associated with a surge, will be able to submerge the vulnerable parts of the coast tomorrow. #VigilanceOrange pic.twitter.com/VgugEO9f9X- VigiWeatherFrance (@VigiMeteoFrance) January 13, 2020
The alert is valid from 5 a.m. on Tuesday morning and will be valid until the high seas scheduled for the evening. The three departments also remain vigilant yellow for strong winds, rain and floods, as do several departments in the North West quarter.
