Rivers in France are Raising their Levels

Record rain across sodden France keeps Seine rising Rivers in France are Raising their Levels
Patty Aguilar | 26 January, 2018, 19:44

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo urged residents to remain vigilant as flooding along the River Seine was forecast to continue into the weekend of January 27-28.

Experts have predicted that the river could even reach 6.2 metres, which would surpass the level of the 2016 flood by ten centimetres.

While the Seine's water levels are now well above average, they're still a far cry from the Great Flood of 1910, during which the water level rose eight metres above the ordinary level.

The height of the Seine is measured not from the riverbed but from a point located at the Austerlitz bridge - but 6.2 metres is three to four times its usual level of between one and two metres.

Meteo France revealed that exceptionally high levels of rain this winter were to blame for the floods, with rainfall in Paris twice as high as normal.

Hundreds of people have been ordered from their homes in Paris amid a flood alert as officials prepare to evacuate priceless artworks from the Louvre Museum.

Tourists and locals were advised to steer clear of the banks for fear of being caught by swirling water, and barges moored to the submerged quaysides appeared as if stranded in the middle of a vastly wider river.

In addition to the capital, where the Seine river is expected to keep rising until Saturday, other regions are threatened in the north and east of the country. Authorities have forbidden people from taken boats onto the river, and the museums along the water's edge are under surveillance. National rail operator SNCF extended service halts within Paris on the busy RER C suburban line through next Wednesday, and all boat traffic on the Seine in Paris and upstream has been stopped, keeping tourists off the capital's famed sightseeing boats. Sand bags have been piled up at the Pont Neuf station, on the right bank of the river.
