Flooded France

Time for a trip back in history. An example of a severe flood can be seen in January 1910 in Paris, France. Three months of heavy rain and snow led to the river Seine flooding. Floodwaters peaked at more than 20 feet (which is about 6 meters, and higher than a double decker bus) above their normal level. These waters lasted for one week and 20,000 buildings were flooded in Paris.
