Twelve departments placed on “red alert”

Twelve departments placed on “heat wave red alert”, announces the Prime Minister. ” Be careful ! Stay hydrated, stay cool, give and hear from loved ones. If unwell contact 15,” she wrote on Twitter. The departments concerned are as follows: Tarn, Tarn-et-Garonne, Gironde, Landes, Lot-et-Garonne, Gers, Haute-Garonne, Charente, Charente-Maritime, Deux-Sèvres, Vienne and Vendée.

Until then, 23 departments were on orange alert and temperature records for the month of June should be broken in the coming days. Calling for vigilance, the head of government recalled the advice in the event of a heat wave: “hydrate yourself, stay cool, give and hear from your loved ones”.

A green number was also launched today by the government so that everyone can learn as much as possible about the best practices to adopt.
