Floods that inundated parts of France this week, killing four and forcing thousands from their homes, could start easing as the Seine river stabilized after reaching a peak Saturday, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said.Valls said four people died in the floods and 24 others were wounded and about 20,000 people were evacuated from their homes."It will take at least a week for the Seine to return to its normal level," said Bruno Jamet, a hydrologist at Vigicrues, a state body that monitors flood levels. He added that the Seine will stay above 6 meters for several hours Saturday before receding slightly over the weekend.
