The 1910 Seine flood, often referred to as the flood of the century, was the largest known flood of the Seine river after the one from 1658.
The Seine river reached its maximum level of 8.62 metres on the hydrometric scale of the Austerlitz Bridge in Paris on January 28th. It affected many parts of the capital and many towns along the river for several weeks before and after that date. The floods happened in about ten days, and the decrease approximately took 35 days.
The tributaries and confluences of the Seine river suffered the same fate to varying degrees due to the interdependence of the various hydrological systems.
During this great flood in 1910, the deputies, in order to resume work, went to the National Assembly by boat. The Zouave of Pont de l'Alma, on which Parisians are used to measure the height of the Seine floods, had water up to its shoulders.
