The Flooding In Paris Today Compared To The Great Flood of 1910

284

Paris’s biggest museums, the Louvre and Musee d’Orsay, were forced to close as the Seine River climbed to 6.1m (20ft) on Friday night, a 34-year high that instantly reminds of the great flood in 1910. So, when the Seine River began its decline on Saturday, a man took these photos, comparing last week’s disaster to the Great Flood in 1910.

Fascinating photos, that also show just how far sewage systems have come since 1910.
