  • Catastrophic flooding across western Europe as politicians blame climate change - BBC News

    7:32

    More than 120 people have died and hundreds are still missing after record rainfall caused the worst flooding in parts of Western Europe for many decades.

    In Germany dozens of people were unaccounted for, with the Chancellor Angela Merkel describing the floods as a catastrophe.

    Torrential rain has also devastated parts of Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. 

    Survivors have described the terrifying speed at which water levels rose.
     
    Some politicians in Germany say the extreme weather is the result of global warming and they're calling for more urgent action to counter climate change.

    Clive Myrie presents BBC News at Ten reporting - from Jenny Hill in Erftstadt, Germany - Anna Holligan in the Dutch town of Valkenberg - and chief environment correspondent Justin Rowlatt on the threat posed by climate change.

  • Dozens missing after severe flooding causes chaos in Germany | DW News

    5:37

    At least nine people have died in parts of western Germany amid heavy rains and flooding, local police said on Thursday. Some 70 people were missing, many of them after the collapse of six houses in Germany’s western state of Rhineland-Palatinate following hours of torrential rain. About 25 more buildings in the Schuld region were at the risk of caving in, local police said.

    Heavy rains lashed western Germany on Wednesday, causing massive property damage and prompting mass evacuations. Several motorways were closed. Rhineland-Palatinate’s Vulkaneifel district was forced to declare a state of emergency as several areas were not accessible due to the torrential rain. The situation is very serious, we have many flooded roads and villages that are no longer accessible, District Administrator Julia Gieseking said from the town of Daun late Wednesday. She said the state of emergency would allow the military to join relief efforts. The German Army sent over 230 soldiers and heavy machinery to help clear streets affected by flooding.

  • Flooding in Germany: Death toll rises to 33 with dozens still missing | DW News

    3:19

    At least 33 people have died in parts of western Germany amid heavy rains and flooding, local police said on Thursday. Most of the deaths have been reported in the states of North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate.

    Koblenz police also said that at least 18 people in the Bad Neunahr-Ahrweiler area in Rhineland-Palatinate had died in the floods.

    Unfortunately, we have to confirm that the number of fatalities in connection with the flood disaster in the Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler area has now risen to a total of 18. Our deepest condolences go out to all concerned, the department tweeted.

    More than 70 were missing in the same region, police said, after the Ahr river that flows into the Rhine burst its banks and brought down half a dozen houses.

    Several also went missing after six houses collapsed in the same state, following hours of torrential rain. About 25 more buildings in the Schuld region were at the risk of caving in, local police said.

  • Catastrophic’ flooding hits western Germany leaving dozens dead

    1:39

    Heavy rain and floods have caused the collapse of six houses in Germany’s western state of Rhineland-Palatinate, leaving at least 38 people dead and many missing or stranded on rooftops. Two firemen drowned and the army was deployed to help stranded residents on Wednesday, after a slow-moving low-pressure weather system caused once-in-a-generation floods

    Rail, road and river transport have been disrupted in the country’s most populous region. The German weather service issued an extreme weather warning on Wednesday for parts of three western states, while Hagen, a city of 180,000, declared a state of emergency after the Volme river burst its banks.

  • Germany floods: At least 70 dead and dozens more missing after record rainfall in western Europe

    4:17

    At least 42 people have died in Germany and dozens were missing on Thursday (July 15) as record rainfall in western Europe caused rivers to burst their banks, swept away homes and flooded cellars.

    Eighteen people died and dozens were missing around the wine-growing region of Ahrweiler, in Rhineland-Palatinate state, police said, after the Ahr river that flows into the Rhine rose and brought down half a dozen houses.

    Another 15 people died in the Euskirchen region south of the city of Bonn, authorities said. In Belgium, two men died due to the torrential rain and a 15-year-old girl was missing after being swept away by a swollen river.

    In the Netherlands, flooding rivers damaged many houses in the southern province of Limburg, where several care homes were evacuated.

    Hundreds of soldiers were helping police with the rescue efforts in Germany, using tanks to clear roads of landslides and fallen trees, while helicopters winched those stranded on rooftops to safety.

  • Dozens still missing in Germany two weeks after floods | DW News

    7:42

    Two weeks after the devastating floods in western Germany, the disaster is far from over. People are only slowly working their way through dealing with what the flood has left behind: bulks of mud and piles of rubbish. Dozens of people are still missing.

    DW visited a young Syrian from Ahrweiler, who lost everything - for the second time in his life: during the civil war in Syria, and now in Germany.

  • Severe floods wash cars away in Germany - 11 dead & 70 people missing after homes collapse

    2:06

    ELEVEN people are dead and up to 70 people are missing when homes collapsed during intense flooding in Germany.

    The homes came down in Rhineland-Palatinate in the north-west of the country last night and the dead included two firefighters who drowned.

    Two firefighters drowned while trying to save those left stranded by the floods.

    At least four are dead and as many as 25 more homes in the Schuld bei Adenau district are reportedly in danger of suddenly collapsing, while six have already crumbled, local police said Thursday morning.

    Victims' bodies were found scattered in several places.

    A police spokesman in Koblenz said that up to 70 people are missing, Bild reports.

    In Solingen and in the Unna district, two men were found dead in their flooded cellars.

    The situation in the rural area of Eifelkreis Bitburg-Prum has been described as extremely dangerous.

    A family of five is reportedly stranded in their home while being surrounded by rising water - with rescue attempts proving unsuccessful.

    Homes within a 50-metre radius of the Ahr River have been urgently evacuated.

    Residents were seen climbing onto the roofs of their homes in a desperate attempt to be rescued by helicopters.

    The Germany Weather Service issued an extreme weather warning for three states this week.

    The city of Hagen declared a state of emergency after the banks of the Volme river burst.

    Rail and road transport has been disrupted by the torrential downpours and the flooding.

  • German floods: More heavy rain expected as people return home | DW News

    6:12

    In western Germany, people are returning to towns and villages wrecked by devastating floods - which left more than 200 people dead across several western European countries. Now, weather forecasters have announced there's more rain to come, causing new worries for people still busy digging through the mud, and trying to come to terms with their losses.
    With cleanup efforts underway, the extent of the damage for businesses is becoming clear. Anger is swelling up about why multiple systems designed to warn people of the impending disaster all failed. With more heavy rains expected in the coming days, locals fear that this may not be the last of their sorrows, and that the waters may rise again.

  • Floods kill more than 125 people in Western Europe

    3:08

    Sky News' Michelle Clifford reports from Europe on flooding in Germany and Belgium, and towns completely destroyed by the raging waters. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:

    Heavy rainfall and flooding have wreaked devastation across parts of western Europe, with rescue workers currently trying to prevent further damage.

    The death toll rose above 150 on Saturday, according to media reports, with that figure expected to rise as flood waters recede.

    Parts of Switzerland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands have been affected, but the most severe flooding is reportedly in Germany and Belgium.

    Germany’s Ahrweiler county in the Rhineland-Palatinate state is one of the worst-hit areas, along with North Rhine-Westphalia, the country’s most populated state.

    The World Meteorological Organization said Friday that some parts of western Europe had received up to two months worth of rainfall in just two days.

  • Flooding in Germany: Ministry of Defense issues military disaster alert | DW News

    6:38

    The massive flooding that hit western Germany has killed at least 103 people and wiped out several houses. The North Rhine-Westphalia Interior Ministry announced on Friday that at least 43 died in the flooding. More than 60 people have been reported dead in Rhineland-Palatinate.

    Several houses have collapsed in Erftstadt, south of Cologne, and rescue crews were struggling to help residents who had returned to their houses despite the warnings, officials said on Friday. Several people were missing, while a gas leak was further hampering rescue workers as they tried to reach stranded people by boat, the Cologne district government said. A spokesman for the district government of Cologne said 55 people have been rescued from affected houses, while 15 were still trapped in their homes. The Bundeswehr, the German military, is stepping in with vehicles to help rescue the trapped people, the spokesperson said. He appealed to residents who had been evacuated not to return to their homes. Returning is life-threatening, he said.

    Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said the main focus for the German military, the Bundeswehr, will be assisting the emergency response. I have already ordered that all other assignments that are not directly related to the missions abroad be put on hold, Kramp-Karrenbauer said on Friday. The Bundeswehr is already providing active help with emergency response and clearing work with its quickly available on-site forces, she added.

    Rescue workers continue searching for missing people on Friday as dozens were still missing across western Germany. Police in Koblenz stressed that people should not go to affected areas to search for their relatives or belongings. You put yourself in danger and, possibly, hinder the rescue measures, police said on Twitter. There were still more than 1,300 people unaccounted for in the Ahrweiler region, possibly due to mobile networks being down.

  • Flooding in Europe kills at least 150 with hundreds still missing | DW News

    Record-breaking floods have killed at least 150 people in western Europe. Most of the deaths are in Germany's west - where the disaster area stretches between the towns of Heinsberg, Erftstadt and Ahrweiler, near the border with the Netherlands and Belgium. More than 130 people have been confirmed dead and more than a thousand are still missing. President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has promised support for victims' families, and to the damaged towns.
    In Belgium, at least 20 people have died in the flooding. The government has declared Tuesday a national day of mourning.
    The towns of Liège in Belgium and Venlo in the Netherlands have been hit hard. In Venlo 10,000 people were told to evacuate, as well as 200 patients from a hospital. In Liege, the swollen Meuse river has burst.

  • Europe floods: 70 people missing in Germany after floods leave trail of destruction

    1:11

    #Germany #flooding

    Dozens of people have died and at least 70 are missing after torrential rain triggered flash flooding across Europe overnight - with homes and cars swept away in Germany and parts of Belgium.

    The hardest-hit was western Germany where at least 30 people were killed, spread across its most-populous state of North Rhine-Westphalia and neighbouring Rhineland-Palatinate.

    The town of Schuld, south of Bonn, was particularly badly affected - with at least four killed and dozens more missing when the Ahr river burst its banks and swept away six homes even as people sheltered on their rooftops.

    Eight people also died in the Euskirchen region while two firefighters were killed elsewhere during rescue efforts, with 300 soldiers deployed to help rescue teams today along with helicopters and inflatable boats.

    Malu Dreyer, premier of Rhineland-Palatinate state, described the situation as 'a catastrophe', adding: 'There are dead, missing and many still in danger. Our emergency services are in action... and risking their own lives.'

  • At least 58 killed and dozens missing after record rain in Germany

    1:56

    독일 서부 홍수로 58명 사망•70명 실종…100년만의 폭우 원인은 기후변화

    At least 70 people have died in Germany and Belgium following a record rainfall.
    Most of the victims were in Germany, but at least 11 have died in Belgium, with more reported missing.
    With rescue operations ongoing, officials say they expect the death toll to rise.
    Kim Dami reports.
    At least 58 people have died and dozens were still missing Thursday in Germany...as heavy flooding struck the country, turning streams and streets into raging torrents.
    The worst of the flooding hit the states of Rhineland-Palatinate and North Rhine-Westphalia, where a record 148 liters of rain per square meter fell overnight.
    Grieving for the lost lives, Germany's chancellor pledged the full power of the state to find those still missing.

    My thoughts are with you and you can trust that all the forces of our state - federal, state and local - will join forces to do everything possible to save lives.

    Germany is equipped with a well-developed flood control system, which has previously resulted in very few human casualties from flooding.
    So this record rainfall and the preceding heatwave, experts point out, could be linked to climate change because as the Earth's temperature increases, more water vapor stays in the atmosphere.

    This is a natural disaster, but the fact that this disaster could take place in this way certainly also has something to do with the fact that climate change is also progressing in the way.

    While rescue operations continue under severe conditions amid power cuts, local weather experts predict the rain will last until Friday afternoon, with a further rainstorm forecast for Southwestern parts of the country.
    Neighboring Belgium has also been badly hit, leaving at least eleven people dead and causing the evacuation of 18-hundred residents, while the Netherlands, France and Switzerland have reported damage by the flooding.

  • Are Germanys flood warning systems ready for more extreme weather? | DW News

    14:15

    00:00 The death toll from Germany's devastating flood disaster has risen to more than 160, as emergency workers continue to search for dozens of people still unaccounted for. German authorities insist their flood warnings worked, even though there was massive loss of life. Some experts say Germany's flood warning system failed and has led to such widespread devastation. They say authorities knew what was coming, but failed to prepare.

    02:28 DW reporter Giulia Saudelli is on the ground covering the latest developments. She joins us from the town of Altenahr, in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate, which was especially hard hit by the flooding.

    05:19 DW reporter Emily Gordine is covering the latest developments in Schönau, in the southern German state of Bavaria.

    09:40 Jeff Da Costa, he's a researcher focusing on flood warning systems at the University of Reading and has been personally affected by events as his family's home in Luxembourg was flooded.

    A large-scale rescue effort was underway in Germany Friday after the heaviest rainfall in a century caused flash floods to devastate parts of Western Europe, leaving dozens dead and many more unaccounted for.
    Fast moving torrents of water inundated entire towns and villages in western and southern Germany, causing buildings to collapse and leaving residents stranded, police said Thursday. At least 55 people have died in the severe flooding but authorities said that number is expected to rise. Germany is worst hit with 49 dead, while six people died in Belgium.

  • Angela Merkel Mourns Victims of Deadly Floods in Germany

    1:40

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed shock and sorrow Thursday at the deadly floods in her country, saying many people had died and pledging that everything would be done to find those still missing.

    More than 30 people have died and dozens were missing Thursday in Germany and Belgium as heavy flooding turned streams and streets into raging torrents that swept away cars and caused houses to collapse.

    “I grieve for those who have lost their lives in this disaster,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel said during a visit to Washington, as she commented on the scope of the flooding.

    “We still don’t know the number. But it will be many.”

    She pledged that everything would be done to find those still missing, adding: “'Heavy rain and flooding' are very inadequate words to describe it.

    Authorities in the western German region of Euskirchen reported eight deaths from the floods. Rescue operations were hampered by phone and internet outages in parts of the county, southwest of Cologne.

    Police said 18 people died in Ahrweiler county, south of Euskirchen. Up to 70 people were reported missing after several homes collapsed in the village of Schuld in the Eifel, a volcanic region of rolling hills and small valleys.

    Many villages were reduced to rubble as old brick and timber houses couldn't withstand the sudden rush of water, often carrying trees and other debris as it gushed through narrow streets.

    Dozens of people had to be rescued from the roofs of their houses with inflatable boats and helicopters. Germany deployed hundreds of soldiers to assist.

  • Germany after the flooding | DW Documentary

    12:27

    Germany is in shock. Days of heavy rain caused several rivers to burst their banks, flooding entire towns and villages. More than 160 people lost their lives. Now survivors are battling to clean up in the wake of the disaster.

    Several European countries have been hit by extreme weather, and many lives have been lost. Regions in western Germany have been most severely affected: in Rhineland-Palatinate, the south of North Rhine-Westphalia, and parts of Bavaria. The floodwaters destroyed highways, houses and whole communities. The floods have receded, leaving behind thick mud and tons of rubble. Chancellor Angela Merkel and other political leaders visited the disaster zones, offering encouragement and promising swift financial help for victims of the flooding. But many of those affected have criticized the emergency response as chaotic. In contrast, communities came together in solidarity – many people travelled long distances to offer their help. DW reporter Miodrag Soric visited the badly hit localities of Schuld and Walporzheim in Rhineland-Palatinate. He reports on how residents and volunteer helpers are dealing with the aftermath of the flooding.

  • German floods leave fears of public-health catastrophe in their wake | DW News

    9:22

    Authorities in western Germany are rushing to clear mountains of debris and restore vital services after devastating floods last week. Many areas were left without access to drinking water after the floodwaters damaged waste water treatment plants. And concerns are now mounting over an environmental and public health catastrophe as sewage flows into rivers. More rain is forecast, complicating the clean-up.
    Meanwhile, social media has played a key role in connecting people affected by the flooding with volunteers who want to offer support. DW reporter Tessa Walther visited one town where a group of Syrian refugees answered the call for help.
