A large area of France is on alert for severe storms for a second day.

On Sunday night damaging winds gusting to over 110 Km/hr and tennis ball sized hailstones battered the Val D’oise department near Paris.

France’s meteorological service has put 32 departments in the country’s west and north on orange alert until 3 am on Tuesday for “violent” storms with heavy rain, hail, intense lightning activity and strong winds.
