An emergency simulation drill is underway in Paris, to see how the French capital would cope if the Rivers Seine and Marne burst their banks. They are preparing for the possibility of a major flood - on the scale of city's Great Flood of 1910.
The exercise will test decision making and coordination between city's authorities.
Nobody knows when, or even if, another big flood will happen.
