Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel is visiting regions of Germany affected by severe flooding that has killed at least 156 people.
The disaster area in Germany spans more than 100 kilometers near the border with the Netherlands and Belgium, where the district of Ahrweiler was the worst hit. A massive clean-up operation is underway as rescue crews search for survivors. More than a thousand people are still missing.
Destruction and debris on every corner
The only sound on the streets: Mud being scraped away, and tractors rumbling through the once picturesque town of Ahrweiler.
In Ahrweiler the water has now subsided and it's only now the true extent of the damage caused by the floods is really coming to light. A lot of people are returning to their homes for the first time."
The scenes are devastating for those returning.
Volunteers, family and friends have travelled far and wide to Ahrweiler to help those affected.
They're here clearing homes, or supplying people with the basics.
Many locals right now want financial help from the state: quickly and with as little red tape as possible.
Further north, in Erftstadt, a donation bank at a school has been overwhelmed with clothes and food.
Some locals evacuated from Erftstadt this week are also being sheltered at the school.
Many feel left in the dark.
For many of those affected, that question could takes weeks, months...if not years to be answered.
While some German towns begin to assess the damage and clean up, others further south are being hit by new flooding. In the southeast, in Saxony, rail lines are closed due to rising waters. A state of emergency has been declared in parts of the state of Bavaria. Across the border in Austria, flooding and heavy rains are causing serious damage.
In the town of Hallein, close to the German border, a flash flood has swept through the streets. People living there had already been warned to be careful, and avoid going into their basements.
Other parts of Europe have also been badly affected by the floods. Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated in southern parts of the Netherlands. And Belgium is also counting the cost: At least 27 people died there. The region around the Meuse river was worst affected by what authorities are calling an "unprecedented" deluge of water.
The floods have receded from the streets of Pepinster - leaving the mud behind. Residents are toiling to reclaim their homes - hoping that the rain holds off. Days of heavy downpours turned this gentle stream into a raging torrent.
Houses along the riverbank overwhelmed by the force of the water. Cars were swept off the roads.
Residents are in shock.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen came to take stock of the damage - and is promising long term help.
Outside assistance is welcome in Pepinster, but the community is pulling together to get through the worst. The water is on its way out. But it will be a long before things get back to normal.

It all started when a European brought porcelain to German soil from china 600 years ago. Now everything in Germany is made in china. Modern things German are easily dispossable. The real treasures went to aristocrats - some auctioned to foreigners for more money. It is just a question of what country in southeast Asia these flood scraps are to be dumped again like what Canada ought to do for local western dirt management.

Mongolia has carried out terrorist attacks using coronavirus biological and chemical weapons around the world, killing 4,000,000 people, disrupting the health of millions and disrupting the international economy! and Mongolia, in collaboration with meteorologists, is killing people and damaging the economy through natural disasters such as lightning, earthquakes, torrential rains and floods! The last two examples are the floods in the European Union and China. Mongolia needs to compete with the rest of the world on the right path of development! Mongolia warns to stop terrorism and sabotage!

I lived in Sachsenhausen for 2 years and love to Germany and I am so sorry and I hope that you can rebuild because it probably will not happen again. You know it does look devastating but remember what happened after world war ii, they said the Japanese would clear their streets from the bombs in days. Everybody around picked up a shovel or whatever and participated.
Bernadette Duroch
Bernadette Duroch Pred 11 dnevi
You do know the main cause of climate change like flooding other than haarp is not cow poop, Journalists should do their homework at least. You can kill every cow tomorrow and bury it all, stop making plastic toys and stop driving and lower your footprint. it's not going to prevent anything. We are in a solar minimum, we have solar flares, we have heavenly Bodies coming close to the Earth and asteroids and all that causes earthquakes and flooding and also there are a lot of volcanoes that are causing lava under the ground like in Italy and the West Coast of United states. You can't do a thing about it so the best thing to do besides be a good citizen and lower your footprint is to pray and pray over your property so things like this hopefully won't happen to you. The government needs to butt out and quit telling us what to do but make suggestions. I'm sure there's a list of 20 things that they could say that you could do and please do and stop being well you know like the leadership in the 1940s.

** In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Praise be to Allah, The Lord of the worlds. Most Gracious, Most Merciful; Master of the Day of Judgment. It is You we worship and You we ask for help. Show us the straight path, The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray.*** Surah Al-Fatihah or Surat al-Fātiḥah is the first chapter of the Quran. Its seven verses are a prayer for the guidance, lordship and mercy of God. Ask ALLAH for help and guidance.....
