With its houses close to the sea, Saint-Malo is favored by lovers of strong images. Hearing the Meteo-France orange “waves-submersion” vigilance bulletin launched the day before, the production company Easy Ride had the idea on Tuesday to fly a drone over the port of Ille-et- Ugly.

Protected windows and sandbags on the dike
Some buildings are seen receiving only a few drops of water, while others at the edge of the water are hit hard by the swell. Foreseen, the inhabitants had protected their most exposed windows with planks, while sandbags had been piled on the dike.
As a reminder, Meteo-France launched its “waves-submersion” orange alert for several departments such as Finistère, Loire-Atlantique, Vendée, Charente-Maritime, Gironde, Landes (as in Hendaye) and Pyrénées-Orientales. Atlantiques.
