France Floods Claim Three More Lives as Massive Mop-Up Begins

Paris (CNN)Parisians let out a cautious sigh of relief Saturday as they watched water levels in the Seine River finally begin to drop following days of miserable flooding. But the rest of the country was not so lucky, with three new deaths reported.

.

The Seine, which runs through the city, burst it banks after days of heavy rains, causing chaos in the city. Some public transportation services and riverside businesses were shut down, while the world-famous Louvre museum scrambled to move 150,000 pieces of art to higher ground in a painstaking operation, closing its doors for a second day Saturday.

.

The Seine in Paris crested at 6.1 meters (20 feet) above its usual levels early Saturday, the environment ministry reported, and the floods are slowly receding.

.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Saturday that France’s death toll had risen from one to four. At least 10 people in Germany have died in floods there.

.

Environment Minister Sole Royal said the country was “still on alert.”
“And we are also concerned about some areas in France, the Eure and Seine-Maritime regions that may have floods as well,” she said, referring to regions in the east.

.

Valls said around 270 military personnel would be sent to affected areas Saturday and that three helicopters would be deployed for rescues. He said the region of Normandy and the town of Poissy near Paris are also still at risk.

.

The Interior Ministry earlier said more than 3,000 firefighters were mobilized and more than 200 national civil security personnel were helping in rescues, as the country declared a state of natural disaster.

The mop-up begins

.

More than 19,000 residents living in the areas surrounding the City of Lights have been left in darkness, as floods wiped out power services Friday.

.

Thousands who were evacuated from towns like Nemours, south of Paris, are starting to return home, only to find many of their possessions destroyed. Some have lost everything.

Floods and strikes

.

The floods have come at a bad time for the French government. It has been scrambling to keep gas stations from running dry and cities powered after workers at oil refineries and nuclear plants walked off the job weeks ago over proposed changes to labor laws.

.

Transportation workers joined the strike, and only a third of the country’s trains are running.
