Cyclone Freddy: Reunion Island Is Put On Orange Alert Sunday Night

Must Read

The prefect of Reunion Island decided to activate the orange alert as of 7 pm yesterday as the very intense tropical cyclone Freddy is approaching their coasts.

The very intense tropical cyclone Freddy should be close to the coasts of Reunion Island during the night of Monday to Tuesday. But its influence should be felt during the day on Monday. The prefect of Reunion Island has decided to activate the orange alert from this Sunday evening at 7 pm.

No school this Monday

Jérôme Filippini, prefect of Reunion Island, and Chantal Manès-Bonisseau, Rector of Reunion Island, have therefore announced the closure of schools for the day on Monday. The University of La Réunion has also decided not to open its doors on Monday.

The economic world will not be at a standstill. The weather conditions should not deteriorate too much during the day on Monday. But the bad weather should settle in the afternoon.

Anticipation

The prefect of Reunion Island decided to quickly announce his decision to activate the orange alert. Jérôme Filippini has activated this level of the ORSEC Cyclone plan for the first time since he took office on the island. He chose to warn the Reunionese from the middle of the day to allow parents to make their arrangements for this Monday.

The worst has been avoided

Emmanuel Cloppet, interregional director of Météo-France Indian Ocean in Reunion, said with relief that a direct impact of the eye of the very intense tropical cyclone Freddy was now excluded. He assures that the low-pressure system would have been the most powerful in history to hit Reunion Island.
