Americas - Climate – Severe storms and tornados in the southern U.S. and in South America (December 28, 2015)

We are following with concern the strong storms and tornados that in recent days have struck the southern United States, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay.

France offers its condolences to the loved ones of the dozens of victims. It assures the large number of displaced persons and the authorities of the countries concerned of its solidarity.

While no continent is immune from extreme climate events, France pledges to strengthen alert systems, particularly in the most vulnerable countries.
