France: River Seine rises ever higher, 1,500 evacuated in Paris region

The winter flooding of the Seine has continued after heavy rainfall recorded in recent days, as seen in Paris on Sunday. Around 1,500 people were evacuated in 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... Еще nevertheless take several days before the river returns to its normal mid-January level, according to the Vigicrues flooding agency. The Pont Neuf metro, in the heart of Paris, is experiencing 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.
