Paris Under Water

Email a Friend
On the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of the 1910 Paris flood, Jeffrey H. Jackson discusses what happened when torrential rainfall swelled the Seine and saturated the soil, and faulty engineering caused drowned streets, homes, businesses, and museums. His book Paris Under Water: How the City of Light Survived the Great Flood of 1910 tells the story of how Parisians came together to confront the crisis.
