Death toll from flooding in France rises to 4.

PARIS, Sha'ban 28, 1437, June 04, 2016, SPA -- French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said the death toll from the flooding across the country has risen to four while 24 people have been injured, AP reported. He didn't give any more details about the additional death, which brings the total death toll across Europe from the flooding in recent days to 17. After a meeting at a government crisis center Saturday, Valls confirmed the water level of the Seine river is now decreasing "slowly but steadily" in Paris. Valls also announced several ministerial meetings next week to ensure quick financial help to the people affected. He urged Paris visitors and residents to "take care to observe safety precautions" since many have been walking along the river banks to observe the rare phenomena. Nearly a week of heavy rain has led to serious flooding across parts of France, Germany, Romania and Belgium. --SPA 13:19 LOCAL TIME 10:19 GMT
