The banks have been erased by the tumultuous waters of the river.

While the Haute-Garonne department is still on orange alert for “flooding and flooding”, the Toulouse Garonne reached 4.20 m on Tuesday morning, not very far from the level reached during the floods of June 2020 and well beyond. beyond the last notable overflow of December 14, 2019 (3.49 m).

This flood due to the incessant rains which hit the South-West on Sunday and Monday necessitated the evacuation of students from the Daniel-Faucher university campus on Monday evening and the closure of the Barrière casino on the island of Ramier.

More than 200 interventions by firefighters and gendarmes

In the rest of the department, several flooded departmental roads (fully or partially) had to be cut on Monday and, according to a report from the prefecture, the firefighters had carried out 119 interventions on Monday evening.

The gendarmes handled 530 weather-related calls in twenty-four hours and triggered around 75 operations.

Five schools and colleges were evacuated on Monday in the municipalities of Cierp-Gaud, Saint-Béat, Caujac, Esperce and Grazac.

In Saint-Béat, the school and the college remain closed this Tuesday, as the college of Aspet.

Congratulations to the services of @croustoulouse supported by those of the State @PrefetOccitanie and the City @Toulouse for this successful evacuation of the students from the Faucher residence.

We would like them to quickly find their homes https://t.co/I7Q6gIcUFt
