With wind gusts of up to 110km / h in some places, due to the passage of Hurricane Elsa near the Caribbean arc, since Friday morning the rescue services have had a lot to do.

From 7:37 a.m., they were called to Saint-Claude for cables that had fallen to the ground in rue Joseph Pitat not far from the gendarmerie. EDF had to intervene on site.

At around 11:40 am, bamboos on the ground at the level of the Corossol river on the route de la Traversée required a new emergency response.

At the beginning of the afternoon, around 2 p.m., a tree fell in Morne-à-L’Eau partially obstructing the roadway at Capitonnage Lacrosse. The tree had to be pruned and the services of Routes de Guadeloupe had to clear the road.

Also around 2 p.m., an electric pole fell on rue Emile Chaulet in Bouillante, blocking traffic on the municipal road. EDF services, alerted by the gendarmes, intervened.

An hour later, at 3 p.m., the departmental road was hampered by the fall of a tree in Marigot in Vieux-Habitants. An intervention was also necessary to cut the tree in order to clear the road.

According to Météo France, Hurricane Elsa should generate strong gusts of up to 110km / h on the reliefs tonight. The help is therefore likely to be mobilized until the end of the passage of the phenomenon on the West Indian arc.
