Due to the rains, the water level in the Seine rose to six meters, the houses more than 25,000 people are deenergized, and 3,000 residents had to be evacuated. 26 departments (including Paris) declared a state of emergency. Four people became the victims of the flood and the cost of damage rose up to 600 million euros.
But the flood peak is over now. But the threat of terrorist attacks still is high. French special services reported that Daesh is to make 'a series of terrorist attacks in the crowd' during the Euro-2016. Daesh followers use Twitter and urge to attack military and civilian targets during the holy Muslim month of Ramadan, when the Euro-2016 will be held.
French President Francois Hollande says he doesn’t even consider the question of the championship’s cancelling. France has spent 24 mln euros just to ensure order and safety in the fan zones.
The Interior Minister of France Bernard Cazeneuve reported players and fans will be protected by about 90,000 security workers. Moreover, he added that the state of emergency was extended until July 26, so all the law enforcement and military system of the republic will be in full combat readiness.
According to the head of security in the Euro-2016 Ziad Khoury, they are going to apply the UAV technology over the Euro’s stadiums. The technology lets take control of a drone and take it away from the field. The measure has never used during the sporting events before. There will be no-fly zones over the ten French stadiums where the games are planned to be held.
