Interesting storms in France: Eiffel Tower struck by lightning, Chablis vineyard heavily damaged.


A storm hit France last night. A 57-year-old woman also lost her life in a landslide. The Chablis vineyard suffered significant damage as a result. In Paris, the Eiffel Tower itself was struck by lightning.

In the heart of Chablis, it took less than 10 minutes to destroy 75 to 95% of the vineyard. The 2024 vintage is lost. “It was the biggest carnage I have ever seen“, says winemaker Daniel-Etienne Defaux.”The vines are cut. Nothing left. They are uprooted. It wasn't the pearls that fell, but the pebbles between the ping-pong ball and the pétanque ball. We can have ice ball fights.” The historic center of Chablis was affected from early evening. Streets have turned into streams.

A woman lost her life in the Aisne. The facade of his house collapsed. The resident was swept away by the mudslide.
