Has it happened? They were talking about it on the radio this morning but although the river was high, it hadn't overflowed. They have had the most rain in January for a considerable number of years. Its obviously Trump's fault for pulling out of the Paris agreement.
I think they said it had flooded outside Paris but so far the City had got away with it.
The rats are coming out and about because their usual stomping grounds are flooded and the basements of buildings like the Louvre are shut off. It's the fact those measurements are in metres that makes it astounding.
Maybe Parisians need to issue their statue with a snorkel and mask.
