Weather: the number 1722 activated due to a risk of storm or heavy rain

The Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium (IRM) issued a warning on Wednesday of the risk of storms or heavy rainfall. The FPS Interior has therefore temporarily activated number 1722 for non-emergency interventions by firefighters. The 1722 unloads the emergency number 112 in the event of a storm and prevents people whose life is in potential danger from having to wait unnecessarily.

Precipitation that can exceed 25L / m² in 24 hours is possible, from Wednesday 4:00 p.m. to Friday 12:00 a.m., in the provinces bordering France during this rainy-snowy episode, says the IRM.
