I literally cried for a half hour when i found out that Paris was being flooded. Well not the town, yet. The river is overflowing. So sad!
It's ok, don't feel too sad, it happens every once in a while here... I think the worst of the flooding is over, now. In 1910 there has been a very big flooding, in Paris, if you want more info : https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crue_de_la_Seine_de_1910
Good luck with learning french :)
