Floods in Saarimaa :

The flood in pictures

The motorway entrance to the A620 is partially submerged.  The state capital and several districts also declared a major disaster.  Several buildings in the city had to be evacuated.  The city established alternative accommodation in schools and a citizen's telephone.


Severe weather warnings have been lifted, but the danger has not yet been averted in western Germany. In Saariland and Rhineland-Palatinate, people are fighting against water masses. The extent of the damage will be revealed only after a few days.
