A At the end of the hottest day of the year, thunderstorms broke out in several places, notably in the province of Namur where heavy rains, sometimes accompanied by hail, fell on Wednesday evening between 6.30 p.m. and 10 p.m. The calls to the relief areas mainly concerned mudslides, flooded roads or even underwater caves. The locality of Floreffe was particularly affected.
The province of Walloon Brabant has also suffered a lot of damage.
The Royal Meteorological Institute (IRM) triggered the yellow warning for thunderstorms throughout Belgium until the night from Friday to Saturday morning. They could locally be the source of very intense precipitation accompanied by hail and gales.
Friday afternoon and evening, major thunderstorms will reach our country from France. These storms seem more structured this time with abundant precipitation affecting most regions (20 to 30 l / m² in a short time, or even more). Hail and strong gusts of wind are also to be feared.
