In March authorities in Paris held unprecedented two-week exercise to simulate what would happen if the French capital was hit by catastrophic floods. As floodwaters rise in Paris, here’s a look back at what happened.

.

Earlier this year authorities in Paris held a preparation exercise in case they were hit by catastrophic floods. Heres a timely look back at what happened.

.

Imagine much of the Metro system underwater, as well as a major train station, the Louvre gallery inundated, nearly one million homes submerged and millions of rats fleeing flooded sewers and basements.

.

Thats what authorities in Paris contemplated in March when they begin a mammoth two-week exercise to prepare for a once in a century flood, which experts believe is coming the French capitals way.

.

It might sound like a Hollywood disaster movie but authorities in the French capital are taking the flood threat seriously, which explains the motive for operation “Sequana 2016”.

.

This is the first time an exercise of this scale has been carried out over a region the size of Ile-de-France, said Jean-Paul Kihl, secretary general of the Paris security and defense zone, who will lead the exercises with the aim of making them as true to life as possible.

.

It will help us improve coordination between the state, local authorities and the business world, but it will also make the public more aware. Because this will happen and so we need to prepare for it, he said.

.

“It might be in five, ten, or even 20 years time, but it will happen,” he said.
