Nowadays, storms are ripping through France creating tornadoes and huge waves smashing on city protection walls. Truely apocalyptic!
Yesterday, tornadoes touched down at around 10.30 am in Luçon leaving 13,500 homes without power and damaging 12 homes. This first video features this destructive event.
As if it was not enough! On the French Atlantic coast massive winds propel 10m-plus waves into land. Some beaches were even closed to beachgoers, as waves reached 13.5m off the tip of Brittany, 13m in Morbihan, 12.8m at Belle-Île and 9.2m at Anglet. At Saint-Malo, waves crashing into land reached the height of a two-storey building as shown in this cool movie (back in January 2014):
Further along the coast, at Montalivet in Gironde, BFMTV reported that 30m of beach was lost to the sea in the storm.
Even if these videos are in French, images tell everything! They are experiencing bad, bad weather!
