Towns Drowning in Central Europe

Posted by feww on August 8, 2010


The First Phase of Collapse in Central Europe Has Started.

Severe flooding caused by torrential rain in central Europe has killed at least a dozen people, cutting off towns and forcing the evacuation of thousands of residents from drowning towns and villages by helicopter, reports say.

Swollen rivers are overflowing their banks and large scale flooding in parts of Czech Republic, Germany and Poland are causing bridges, roads and buildings to collapse.

“Water levels have reached record highs in eastern Germany and central Europe as a broken dam in Poland flooded rivers and forced residents from their homes.” A report said.

Water levels in Goerlitz, Saxony, Germany, reached their highest ever, the report said.

“Water levels were highest in Zgorzelec on the river Neisse at 7.4 meters [normal water levels are 1.7m,]” Polish broadcaster TVN24 said. Parts of the city were submerged and several historic buildings have been damaged.
