Paris flood, 1924


Amazingly, despite 35 days of flooding, thousands of evacuations and an estimated $1.5 billion (accounting for inflation) in damages, not a single person died during the flooding. This was partially thanks to the police and armed forces who’s well organized efforts minimized the effects of the disaster. The water achieved its highest level after 10 days and after 35 days the water was gone completely.
