The damages were estimated at 800 million euros for the department, 300 million for the territories of Cannes and 40 million for the municipal properties only. Nearly 100 constructions belonging to the authorities were damaged, if not completely destroyed by this unique weather phenomenon.
As soon as the weather conditions worsened, the City Hall of Cannes immediately gathered to be able to organize the first aid, protect the citizens and then their belongings, help the victims and rebuild the public areas with a communal safeguard plan, which was activated for the first time in the history of Cannes. The solidarity of all the inhabitants was strong and never lessened while dealing with this unprecedented crisis, making massive donation of clothes, electric goods as well as financial ones.
