Waterfalls in the subway. The apocalyptic scenario is that of the station Balard, to Paris, flooded due to the rain. It is estimated that the one that usually falls in one hour fell on the French capital 3 weeks.
In the short video of the flooded metro, which went viral on Twitter (there are almost 4 million views), we see a cascade of water come down the stairs.
The whole station is hostage to the rain, two women they try to to escape to avoid getting trapped.
