Paris Flooding?

Just read in the paper this morning about the Seine bursting its banks from record rain with widespread flooding in Paris and several other cities. Any local reports?
How bad is/was it really?

I have posted updates on this subject under two threads - - on that has "strike" and "flooding" in the header; the other is caled "rain, rain, rain", I think.

Relatively speaking, the floding is not bad, that is not catastrophic. Few, if any people displaced from their homes; homes genuinely lost amost zero, I think. Some sizable segments of communities without drinking water for days on end, I think. The reports are less frequent and less dramatic since Friday.

Still some traffic tie-ups, and possibly depressing to tourists whose first (or only ever) trip to Paris may seem marred. The strike by workers at the Louvre - - March 23-28 may have a greater impact on such visitors.

Best wishes,

Rex

I received an e-mail update from a friend that lives in Paris today. He said don't worry about the flood, it is only effecting the Seine river traffic.
I leave this Thursday so I too am interested.

Bon Voyage

Just returned. Flooding only (so far) affects the river cruises.
