General recommendations after rain

Even after the rain has abated or stopped, streams and rivers will still be very high . You should therefore continue to take extra care until the flood risk  has passed.

Advice on what to do after a heavy downpour or continuous heavy rainfall:

  • Keep an eye on local weather developments, and act appropriately, according to the information you  receive on the conditions;
  • Stay away from water (as well as dry river or stream beds) and from shores and river banks;
  • Avoid steeply sloping terrain;
  •  Mudslides are still a possibility along steep watercourses in the Alps, and these areas should be avoided  until the high water has abated .
  • Avoid bridges where there is flooding.
