A Montargis, les oeuvres d'art du musée Girodet abîmées

Video: France 3

The Louvre looks to be safe, but the Chateau de Chambord has been flooded (drone footage here), and so have the store rooms of the Musée Girodet in Montargis. In the video above, staff can be seem gamely trying to wash the mud from various paintings. More here.

Update - There was no damage at the Chateau de Chambord - they tell me via Twitter - and it is open again. Splendide.
