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

Publicerades den 17 jul 2021
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.

  • LA FIN DU MONDE APPROCHE.

  • People better be peaceful to each other’s instead of being racist and violence about other cultures life

  • Welcome to humanity life

  • Mongolia has carried out terrorist attacks using coronavirus biological and chemical weapons around the world, killing 4,000,000 people, disrupting the health of millions and disrupting the international economy! and Mongolia, in collaboration with meteorologists, is killing people and damaging the economy through natural disasters such as lightning, earthquakes, torrential rains and floods! The last two examples are the floods in the European Union and China. Mongolia needs to compete with the rest of the world on the right path of development! Mongolia warns to stop terrorism and sabotage!

  • I have some german friends, we had a blast when we were sailing together, keep safe Germany!

  • So sad .

  • Didn't the European authorities ask the floods for visas? Why weren't the floods deported?

  • I wish people get fastest recovery after this whole destruction, deep down I m scarred for poor countries who cant even stand a slight anger of the nature.

    • I wish things get worse worldwide, except where I am. Judgment is here. That's what these countries get for not letting me in.

  • And if people still unrepentant, something worse will happen

  • These are the 5 most polluting countries on the planet. Surprised by any? Tweet 1. China (30%) The world’s most populated country has an enormous export market, which has seen its industry grow to become a serious danger to the planet. In just five provinces, which that host most of these industries ,more dioxide is emitted than in any other country in the world. As a consequence, Beijing has experienced, in recent years, constant red alerts for environmental pollution. 2. United States (15%) The world’s biggest industrial and commercial power. Although in recent times it has led the most important initiatives to combat climate change, in practice the great majority have been shown to be insufficient. Neither are its pollution levels limited to big cities; many rural areas are also beginning to notice the consequences. Top 5 most polluting countries 3. India (7%) Fourteen out of the world’s 15 most contaminated cities are in India, says the World Health Organization. The country has had a law protecting air quality since 1981, but the burning of fossil fuels has grown significantly and as a consequence India occupies third place in the ranking of the most polluting countries in the world. 4. Russia (5%) The biggest country in the world geographically appears in this ranking for its high dependence on products such as oil, coal, gas and fossil fuels. Also, in the past few decades, it has experienced several environmental emergencies and has high levels of deforestation and animal hunting. 5. Japan (4%) Finally, the other great Asian power after China completes the list. Japan is the biggest consumer of fossil fuels in the world and the fifth largest emitter of greenhouse gases. This situation is due to its high level of urban development and industry that seems to care little for nature.

  • Saya ikut Berduka,semoga cepat pulih kembali🙏🙏🙏🙏

  • Let the people of God awake, for Jesus is at the door

  • Ok

  • Now is a good time to think about what changes need to take place in this world and make them. The world is out of balance and there is no one to blame but ourselves. It is at the worst times that the biggest changes are made. Something good can come of this.

  • This is what happens when people do not stand up and do the right thing. Everyone had plenty of time to fix the evil in the world and did nothing except pretend it did not exist. If this doesn't wake people up, I don't know what will.

  • When you spread darkness in a world that wants light, you get what you deserve. When you mistreat children and humanity you can expect to be exposed for your misdeeds. How long did you expect to lurk in the shadows and keep getting away with crimes against humanity? Leave now. Enough is enough and this is long overdue.

  • Matthew 24:6-7 King James Version 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

  • If ice melting it means more water bigger wave in The Ocean and more air to produce the result bad weather rain and flooding. Ones water flooding into the land and soak up the ground with water it means the next is to be r Awear if there's massive hole under from drilling oil and gas that balance our natural invironment to protect the land and every living things in our planet Earth it will collapse and the effect is earthquake landslide or sunami So only human is to blame From our father mother and sons and daughters in Jesus Christ name amen . the solution is morally and respect to our planet Earth that the spirit of the universe given to all of us in every colour of the rainbow On Earth 🌎.

  • No news company would tell it like it really is: Property developers and regulators have knowingly endangering human life and to save money risk more lives by neglecting to warn buyers of the danger you them in. They knew the dangers, but money means more to them than human life.

  • God is in control. True man has not herlped. We have not treated the earth well. But you cannot stop Mother Nature.The earth replenishes itself every 33,000 years or so. Humans are in the way. The Bible is the ultimate book and this is all written. Repent. Little time left. None of us are safe and life can change in a blink of an eye.

  • My prayers for Germany, Netherlands and Belgium

  • I don't think people understand that these things are very hard to predict and what will happen with floods at this scale. How can the authorities warn people with an unprecedented occurrance. But people always want someone to blame - you can't blame people for something unknown.

    • They gotta blame themselves. Environmentalists have been saying this for decades, and nobody wants to listen. There you go. And you can bet the same will happen next year, and the next... until people listen.

  • Condolences to all those affected by the floods in german and belgium amidst covid 19. Must be hard to all of u. May God ease everything ❤️ from 🇲🇾

  • Our 🇵🇭all our prayers for this country this is reminder to all the country to serve and take care of our nature🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  • Oh well, scientists have been warning us about climate change since more than 4 decades.... yet little has been done. Thinking the worst is behind us is more than naive, and the sad part is the most vulnerable people will suffer most. We failed as a species in thinking we are somehow disconnected from nature and can live isolated from it or unaffected by the damage we are causing to the planet. And we will suffer the consequences for that mistake. We are running out of time to drastically change the way we live and mitigate some of the climate change we've caused. Better start believing in climate change folks, and accepting this as the new normal.
