Paris Flooding Closes The Louvre

BBC News reported that the river had risen some 15 feet above its normal level, and that heavy rains across Europe have killed at least 10 people, most of them in Germany.

As the river Seine continues to rise and flood some of the city, the Musée du Louvre -- the very popular Louvre Museum in Paris -- will be "exceptionally" closed to the public June 3 so that artworks in its underground vaults can be moved as a precaution, the museum announced June 2.

BBC News reported that the river had risen some 15 feet above its normal level, and that heavy rains across Europe have killed at least 10 people, most of them in Germany, with more rain forecast through this weekend across much of central Europe.

Another popular museum in Paris, The Musee d'Orsay, closed June 2, the news agency reported.
