French authorities say that in areas south of Paris, river levels are at their highest for over 100 years. The country’s Ministry of Interior say that a woman died in the flooding in Seine-et-Marne department on 01 June 2016.
Earlier a young child died in a flooded basement of a house in the village of Saint-Martin-d’Ordon, Yonne Department, after heavy rain on Sunday 29 May 2016.
France Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said emergency workers had carried out more than 12,000 interventions and rescue operations over the last few days.
One of the worst hit areas was the town of Nemours, Seine-et-Marne department, situated south east of the capital, where 3,000 people have evacuated their homes after the Loing River broke its banks. Levels of the river broke previous records that had stood for over 100 years, set during the historic floods around Paris in 1910.
Ten kilometres south of Nemours, an 86-year-old woman was found drowned in her home in Souppes sur Loing, according to the French Ministry of Interior.
Manuel Valls, the French Prime Minister, visited the flood victims and flood hits areas around Nemours earlier today reports Floodlist.com.
