Yikes! Nearly unbelievable.

At least your area is pretty safe from flooding, right?

Oh God.  Such devastation,  homes, cars, mementos, sentimental items, just washed away.

Sending love and hugs to all those affected.

Very unreal devastation, Ingy. Another one of Mother Nature's tantrums, like the wildfires in the West here, and what looks to be a bad hurricane season as well.

I wish people would start seriously listening to Mother Nature.

I'm not making light of this at all, but the human race needs to start paying attention and listening to the earth, unless it's too late!

It's a national catastrophe. Hundreds of people missing, dozens dead.

Not here, luckily.

Thanks, Chuckster.

We called all our friends in the area - luckily none of them was affected directly.

Absolutely.

Human beings are so totally stupid sometimes - they simply don't want to learn or to act consequently.

My thoughts went straight to you Ing as soon as I saw the devastation on TV.

Happy and relieved to know you and your loved ones are safe and unaffected...
saddened for all the people who have been.

Wow! This is all over our news here, where we have just endured two straight weeks of rain.

The images from Germany show much of the devastating destruction.

Glad you and your friends are okay. Thinking of you <3

Angela Merkel calls for climate change action as she surveys deadly flood damage

By Claudio Lavanga and Isobel van Hagen - July 18, 2021


HEIMERSHEIM, Germany — The train station has been reduced to rubble, wrecked cars lie on the tracks and uprooted trees line the riverbank.

Hundreds in the village of Heimersheim were still without power as police combed the wreckage left by receded water on Sunday to look for bodies and potentially flammable material.

There were similar scenes across western Germany and other parts of Europe where the cleanup from last week's disastrous flooding continued. At least 180 people have died, officials confirmed Sunday, thousands more are missing.

As the waters rose from the Ahr river, Zinat Hamsoro, 41, who lives in the normally tranquil Heimersheim, told NBC News she had been forced to climb and spend the night on a hill near the village.

“It happened so fast, and we weren’t warned,” she said Sunday. “The city council posted a warning message on its Facebook page, but by then it was too late.”

In the nearby village of Schuld, Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel surveyed the damage Sunday, meeting with survivors, many of whom had lost their homes, before traveling to the town of Adenau where she held a news conference.

Well, she better shut up.

Her government did next to nothing during the past 16 (!!) years of her reign to prevent catastrophes of this extent. Her enviromental politics are a true disaster. Can't wait for that woman to leave the chancellery! Two more months, and then we'll get finally rid of her.

We had a tornado warning here in my area.

Phone started buzzing, and the alert said to go into the basement from 5:45 to 6:30.

Don't have to tell me twice!   I grabbed my phone and charger, wallet and ID, and my keys, and I high-tailed it to the basement.

The system passed by 6:30, and the rains have stopped.  The sun is even trying to peek out now.
