The prefecture of the neighbouring Alpes-Maritimes has warned of very strong winds along the coast on Thursday and Friday, August 10 and 11.
The prefecture has advised against nautical activities such as sailing, kayaking, and paddle boarding. Inflatable mattresses should also be avoided as they can very easily be blown out to sea.
It is also recommended that boat owners ensure that their vessels are secured to ensure that thy do not break loose from their moorings and run aground onshore. In case of distress at sea, the emergency number to call is 196.
France has said that night clubs will be able to reopen in July, leaving club owners delighted but also concerned about what kind of rules will need to be implemented.

As part of the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the RAMOGE cross-border agreement, an anti-pollution exercise was conducted on April 27 to demonstrate and maintain the expertise of the three signatory states, the Principality of Monaco, France and Italy…
The scenario involved a ‘collision’ off Menton between two ships, resulting in an oil spill, the activation of crisis centres in the three countries and the initiation of the RAMOGEPOL emergency plan. Each national authority was able to measure the effectiveness of its own implementation, and in particular coordination with CEPPOL, the oil-spillage authorities. More info: www.ramoge.org. Exercice de lutte antipollution RAMOGEPOL 2016
Dans le cadre de la célébration du 40e anniversaire de l'Accord RAMOGE, un exercice antipollution a été réalisé en mer le 27 avril 2016. Il visait à démontrer et entretenir le savoir-faire des trois Etats signataires, la Principauté de Monaco, la France et l'Italie.
Le scénario prévoyait une collision au large de Menton entre deux navires, entraînant un déversement d'hydrocarbures, l'activation des centres de crise des trois pays et le déclenchement du plan RAMOGEPOL. Chaque autorité nationale a pu ainsi mesurer la mise en place de ses propres moyens et la coordination avec le Centre d'Expertise Pratique de Lutte Antipollution (CEPPOL).
