The meteorological services of Vacoas have issued a torrential rain warning at 13h30 today, 22nd of January. The team working there has explained that the high humidity has caused the formation of heavy active clouds that have led to thunder and torrential rain in the East and South of the island, together with the central plateau. Other regions might also be affected later during the afternoon.

The pouring rain has caused water accumulation in many areas. This has led to roads not being negotiable; for instance, the streets leading to Melrose, and Midlands, are currently bearing the brunt of the heavy rain. But, that is nothing compared to other villages situated in the East of the island.

The most affected regions are Camp-de-Masque, Bel-Air, Montagne-Blanche, Quartier-Militaire, and, Flacq.

Three households from Camp-de-Masque have already complained of water accumulation.
