Paris Stops River Cruises Due to Weather
Typically, dozens of tours on the scenic riverway are offered every day.
The river is at its highest level in four years, reminding Parisians of the historic flood of January 1910 when hundreds of thousands of people had to flee the city when the river overflowed its banks.
In addition to cruise operations, some roadways on either side of the river were also closed.
Paris has seen exceptional amounts of snow this year, which has caused issues with air travel and temporary closures at the Eiffel Tower as well.
