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.

      @surgical analysis WELL he could have said Germany got what they deserved instead of sympathizing. Germans and the west never sent condolences to people dying from natural disasters when it occurred in Pakistan.
