Flooding in Germany

“I arrived at the site with journalist Filip Harzer right on the morning of Friday 16 July. It was hard to get around the area, with roads destroyed or under water and no mobile phone signal. We saw people in Schuld, Altenburg and Kreuzberg who had only just found out what had happened to their property and whether their neighbours were still alive. In some places, the water had risen up to eleven metres above the normal river level. Many timber houses had disappeared completely, and people were clambering over wood carried there by the flood, remainders of buildings, cars and caravans. I’ve never seen such devastation caused by flooding ever before,” says the author.
