France: 1,500 evacuated from Paris region as Seine continues to swell

Drone footage captured the overflowing River Seine in Paris, Monday, after around 1,500 people were evacuated from the Paris region as authorities fear a high risk of flooding. Peak Seine floodwaters are expected on the night of Sunday 28 to Monday 29 January in Paris. However, the level should ultimately be lower than that of 2016. It will nevertheless take several days before the river returns... Еще to its normal mid-January level, according to the Vigicrues flooding agency. The Pont Neuf metro, in the heart of Paris, experienced water infiltration but the station remains open. This is not the case for the RER C train which will remain closed until February 5, as well as for nearby roads experiencing floods. This Sunday, at noon, the Seine reached 5 metres 81 cm (19 feet) under Austerlitz bridge, according to Vigicrues. It is expected to top 5.95 metres (19.3 feet) on Sunday into Monday.
