Paris: At least 15 people have died across central Europe owing to floods caused by heavy rainfall.

The Seine river in Paris is at its highest level in the history of 30 years, said an official statement.

The Louvre and Orsay museums were shut while staff moved artworks to safety as flood levels climbed above 6m (18ft).

The Seine is set to reach as high as 6.5m and unlikely to recede over the weekend.

The metrological department have predicted for more downpours in the coming days.
