Seine still rising in Paris; Louvre partially closed

Seine still rising in Paris; Louvre partially closed

Some quay-side restaurants were submerged, and some roads and parks were closed as a precautionary measure — along with the bottom floor of the Louvre Museum.

The swollen Seineinched even higher on Sunday, keeping Paris on alert, with forecasters expecting flooding to peak early Monday, leaving a lengthy mop-up job.

Leaks had started to appear in some basements yesterday, while some residents on the city's outskirts were forced to travel by boat through waterlogged streets.

Around 1,500 people have been evacuated from their homes in the greater Paris region, while a similar number of homes remain without electricity, the authorities say.

"The mood is still good, we are used to it - in 20 years we are on our eighth or ninth flood", he said.

It's enough to worry Joao de Macedo, janitor at a residential building in Paris's upscale 16th Arrondissement.

"The people who live here are fortunate enough to live on the Seine river and have water next to them, but then the risk is that the water rises", she said.

The December-January period is now the third-wettest on record since data collection began in 1900, according to France's meteorological service.

Floodwaters have halted boat traffic in Paris, closed roads and schools and prompted the evacuation of hospitals.

"The flood of the Seine river can be interesting from a fishing perspective, because many fish approach more easily the river banks and the surface", said amateur fisherman Maxime Potier, an amateur fisherman casting his line from the Arsenal Port in eastern Paris.

More favourable weather is expected for the week ahead, and Vigicrues has lowered its warning level from orange to yellow in several areas upstream of the capital.

"The situation remains more sensitive downstream", as the high waters from the Seine and its tributaries come together and work their way northwest toward the Atlantic Ocean, Paris regional police chief Michel Delpuech warned.

In the city centre, the Seine flows through a deep channel, limiting the potential flooding damage.
