Residents of Bd Princess Charlotte were shocked to discover, on Tuesday evening, that their street had been flooded by what appeared to be sewage water. The source of this pop-up river was a hole in the middle of the road outside the Novotel Hotel.

The flood flowed all the way down to Av. Saint-Michel before spreading to Bd des Moulins. Av. Roqueville was also greatly affected due to the steep angle of the road.
