France’s weather service issued another red alert in the far western region of Finistère on Saturday night valid until at least 4pm Sunday afternoon.
Morbihand, Loire-Atlantique and Ille-et-Vilaine have remained on orange alert.
On Saturday night residents in Quimper, Finistère enjoyed a lull in the bad weather but Sunday’s forecast dampened the mood.
“The fear is very strong, there is significant rainfall expected and we will have a weekend of something like 50 mm of rain,” said deputy mayor Alain Kerhervé to AFP. “We do not expect a significant decline before the middle of next week.”
Government spokesperson Najat Belkacem-Vallaud said Friday that a state of natural disaster would be established in Brittany and that the country will be present with the region in facing the bad weather.
