Nice – Field visit

An exceptional rainfall period affected the sourthern part of France during mid-January. Rainfall caused flooding but also triggered numerous landslides, most of them occurring on January 17th. Ivanna Penna and Jérémie Voumard visited the Var river valley and the Menton area three days after the events. With the aid of our drone, some inaccessible sites could be surveyed. A report with more information will be included soon in the Hazard News section.
