De Franse hoofdstad kampt al sinds begin deze maand met wateroverlast, waardoor een aantal straten vlakbij de rivier zijn afgesloten. De krant Le Parisien meldde dat de Seine dinsdagmiddag 4,89 meter boven het normale peil staat. De verwachting is dat het de komende dagen nog zal stijgen, tot 6 meter wellicht op vrijdag. De hoofdcommissaris van politie heeft de bewoners van de hele regio Île de France laten weten dat door het overstromingsgevaar de grootste waakzaamheid is geboden.
