Following heavy rainfall in recent hours in Switzerland, especially in the Alpine arc, the flow of the Rhône and its tributaries has greatly increased and reached a level requiring increased attention.
Currently, the forecast forecast is not of particular concern. Nevertheless, the main rivers, and the Rhône in priority, are under constant surveillance by the departments concerned, namely the cantonal control staff of the canton of Vaud (EMCC), the cantonal police of Vaud (PCV), the Vaud firefighters (ECA-SDIS), Vaud civil protection (PCi-VD), the Directorate General for the Environment (DGE) the Directorate General for Mobility and Roads (DGMR) as well as the Directorate General for Health (DGS). These various entities remain vigilant in the face of any changes in the situation, in collaboration with the Canton of Valais.
During the weekend, the population is asked to avoid any movement on the banks of the Rhône, not to take any risk to film or photograph the river and to comply with the instructions of the authorities.
For businesses and municipalities located in the Rhône Valley, especially in the Lavey-Aigle-Villeneuve area, there is no specific measure to take at this stage. However, you should remain attentive to any official information, should the situation evolve in the coming hours, in particular by consulting the site www.alert.swiss or via the Alertswiss application.
