Newsletter August 2015
As was the case in 2003, summer 2015 has been hot with little rain. This marked a contrast with early May, when heavy rain brought flooding in some locations. Rivers that just a few months ago overflowed with water are now running dry. The situation is so severe, that over 40 French departments now have water restrictions.

Traffic in France August 2015
August is the heaviest traffic month in France. That's mostly because of the 'chasse-croise' when Juillettistes (those taking their vacation in July) and Aoutiens (those taking their vacation in August) crisscross on French roads. The chasse-croise takes place this year on the first weekend of August and means Saturday the 1st is rated Black - very heavy traffic.
