The River Seine has overflowed its banks in Paris, prompting authorities to close several streets and cancel boat cruises. Paris City Hall closed roads along the shores of the Seine from the east of the capital to the area around the Eiffel Tower in the west as water levels rose at least 3.3 metres (nearly 11 feet) above the normal level. On Tuesday morning 30 departments across France were placed on orange alert for floods by France’s national weather agency Meteo France.
