Flooding in Western Europe, June 2016

02 Jun 2016

Heavy rain across Western Europe has caused some flooding in parts of France, Germany and Belgium. The Seine River and some of its tributaries have spilled over their banks in villages southeast of Paris, prompting an evacuation of approximately 2000 people. In Paris, the Seine overflowed onto riverbanks, roads and rail tracks. Both the Louvre and the Orsay Museum have temporarily closed to move vulnerable art away from potential flooding.  The German state of Bavaria is experiencing flooding, with 5 people killed. Several neighborhoods around the city of Antwerp have been evacuated due to rising flood waters.
