Pics: Paris underwater as Seine River swells after heavy rains

Floodwaters reached their peak in Paris, with the rain-swollen Seine River engulfing major tourist areas and threatening wine cellars and museum basements, officials say.

Unusually heavy rains have swollen the Seine and other rivers in the region, forcing a halt to all boat traffic in Paris, including tourist cruises.

Parisiennes and tourists alike have used social media to show outsiders the rising tide within the French capital.

Some of the scenes are just spectacular.
