Default Terrible storms in south France

Nicolas, we've been seeing some disturbing images of the storms on our local news.
I hope all is reasonably well.
If you have electricity, send a quick post and let everyone know how you are faring.
Warm regards,
John Angulat

Hi John

Thank you for caring…
I am in Dusseldorf and won't be back till tomorrow (Monday) night.

I got some news of Marin, everything OK for us (are flat is under the roof of the building!) and despite wind recorded at 172 Km/h (more than 110 miles/h) roof is still there and we get aparently no leaks…

She told me that one of the main Cours (kind of avenue) all centenaires trees are down on the ground… a big mess…

In the area of Bordeaux they are a million homes without electricity…

I know there have been some hurt people but do not know how many and how much…

Thanks again for caring, will may post more when back…
Please do no repost my images elsewhere than OPF without my permission.
