Floods in Germany, hundreds of people displaced – Corriere TV

(LaPresse) The situation is worsening in Germany, which has been struggling for days with floods that are affecting various areas of the country. In Lower Saxony, already hard-hit, it has been raining continuously for hours and the water levels of several rivers have risen significantly, increasing the risk of serious flooding. Large areas of the federal state – located in the north-western part of German territory – and the city of Bremen are under constant observation. The situation remained particularly difficult on the Weser, Aller and Leine rivers. In the Lower Saxony town of Lilienthal, around 100 people have not yet been able to return to their homes because the water level has not yet fallen below the critical level. A reserve of several tens of thousands of sandbags has been set up to “be able to react and intervene quickly in acute situations,” said Dennis Koehler, spokesman for the Verden district fire department. Large areas in many locations in Germany have been under water for several days. Hundreds of emergency services are securing the dams and erecting additional protective barriers made of sandbags. The weather warning, according to the German meteorological service, will continue for the next few days. (LaPresse)
