Article contractions

Does de l'orages not contract even if orages is plural. So not "des orages" but "de l'orages." Although on second thoughts its probably "le orages" not "les orages."

This question relates to:
French lesson "À + le = au, à + les = aux, de + le = du, de + les = des (contractions of articles)"

Bonsoir Michael, I am curious about the question; I looked at the lesson and do not find a reference example about «orage» or «orages». Orage is msculin, singular for thunderstorm and orages is the pluriel. De l'orage would be correct but de les orages --> becomes des orages in contraction. J'espère que cela vous aiderait.
