Heavy rain and flash floods hit Mauritius

Published

Roads have been flooded, homes engulfed and and triggering landslips after record-breaking heavy rain hit parts of Mauritius over the last 48 hours.

The country’s central and southern parts were hit by deluges on Monday and Tuesday, forcing a government decision on Tuesday evening to issue a Torrential Rain Warning III and asking civil servants, except those engaged in essential services to stay at home amid the potentially life-threatening flash floods.

Most of the southern region has already seen record rainfall for the year with downpours predicted to carry on until Thursday.

The Met claimed that “It’s not just the total rainfall amount, it’s also how quickly and intensely that rainfall has actually fallen.” The Met also warned of heavy rain with thunderstorms, this time over the northern half and the Central Plateau.
