Violent winds, heavy rainstorms and submarine waves in Brittany in yellow vigilance

If the winds were already strong (100 km / h Ouessant) mid-afternoon in Finistre, then at the end of the day it would have to quickly and gradually reach the rest of Brittany's departments. The reason is the depression that comes from Ireland and falls to the west of France. In its 16th issue of the Météo France bulletin, the four departments of the Bretton Woods were stained with yellow vigilance with strong winds.
