Torrential rains on Sunday April 21 caused major flooding across Mauritius. Regions such as the West, the South-West, and even the North-West are affected, such as Bambous, Geoffroy, Grand Rivière North-West and Port-Louis, among others. The entire island was abundantly watered. In the capital, several streets were submerged, notably La Chaussée, John Kennedy and St-Denis, which experienced strong rises in water.

According to the Vacoas meteorological station, Albion recorded the highest rainfall rate, with 195 mm, closely followed by Domaine les Pailles with 139 mm. As a reminder, the torrential rain warning has been maintained until 10 p.m., and the NEOC recommends that the public stay sheltered and avoid all non-essential travel.

Intervention teams are mobilized across the four corners of the island and are intervening to help those trapped by the severe flooding.
