PARIS, June 3 /TASS/. The outflow of rivers in the Paris region may hit the town of Rueil-Malmaison, a commune in the western suburbs of Paris, in the Hauts-de-Seine department of France where the Russian football team would stay during the UEFA-EURO-2016, the French Ministry of the Environment, Energy and Marine Affairs said on Friday.
"Noticeable [flood] consequences are expected in the upper stream [of the Seine] outside Paris: in the Bois de Bouillon camping zone; on the islands of … and Saint-Germain as well as Rueil-Malmaison where the peak of floods is expected on Saturday morning. Evacuation is likely to take place," the ministry said.
The Russian national football team will stay at the Renaissance Paris Hippodrome de St. Cloud Hotel in the town of Rueil-Malmaison, 14 kilometers away from the Paris center and train on the fields of the Parc Omnisports complex, which is located in the nearby town of Croissy sur Seine located on the opposite side of the River Seine.
France’s central regions have been hit by floods for the past few days after torrential rains fell out in that part of the country early this week. On Thursday, the French authorities announced the last "orange" level of meteorological alarm in Paris and the neighboring departments because of the ongoing floods.
Though rains have stopped in Paris in the past 24 hours, the water in the Seine keeps rising. The local authorities expect the flood peak to be over by the end of Friday when the water in the Seine is going to rise to the 1982 record of 6.5 meters above normal. Experts predict the waters will start receding after that.
