Floodwaters have the River Seine rising after weeks of heavy rain in France.

In Paris, schools, some parks, and river boat service have been closed, and as a precaution, the lower floor of the Louvre also was shut.

The peak of the floodwaters is expected on Sunday night into Monday morning, with damage already reported in some 240 towns.
