Flash floods cause havoc in Europe

Severe flooding has caused devastation in Germany and Belgium, where the death toll has risen to more than 120 as emergency services continued their search for many hundreds more still missing. No loss of life has been reported in Switzerland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, but flash floods swept through the Swiss villages of Schleitheim and Beggingen, several towns in the Grand Duchy were evacuated and thousands were told to leave their homes in the southern Dutch city of Maastricht

  • Why is flooding in Holland so important? Half the land is below sea level. Get used to it. Or come to Australia for some real disasters.

  • These are terrible things that are happening now. Let's unite together. Let's unite for the sake of our children, the future. Only the Creative Society will help us. A society in which the life of a person is in the first place and not money or the ambitions of a handful of non-people. The purpose of which is to manage. Only people can decide everything together. And if it is not yet clear what is happening with the climate, then watch the conference entitled: The Global Crisis. This already affects everyone. Everything will become clear.

  • I express my condolences . Scientifically, flood is not caused by rain. This flood is just caused by the gap between supply rain and the drainage of EU land to river. The drainage of EU land dropped day by day by civilization and decade falling cray like stratum 1mm/year. engineer easily estimated this kind of flood. If The Government will be planning to stop flood-prevention dam, shoreline protection, riverbed renewal and etal, EU people will fell victim to the flood every 20 years. The governors of Deutschland and Belgium just did not done any kind of flood control project. Climate change is not truth. 100-150 mm rain in an hour and/or in a day is usual, is not out of the range. Be careful !

  • Meanwhile in China during henan enormous flood: All the other provinces in China started transporting living resources, and rescue within 2 hrs, most arrived within 1 day despite the horrific storm. People from nearby provinces risk their own lives to send food, save lives, make sure none of the sewers are blocked, and provide mental support. Donation all over media and social organisations, some Chinese companies that have lost billions in profit in the past few years donated millions of euros at risk of bankruptcy, low-key yet still found out by a few people, then the word spread and people rushed to buy their products and send money to the company, and insist on things like "Paid, you can just send me an empty box I'll be happier." Shops, schools, some military sites, anywhere not yet flooded in henan are open to the public and people living in tall buildings host as many smelly strangers as possible at their own homes. Scientific survival tips and real time information all over on the Internet, mouth-by-mouth so that people can help themselves and others, spread faster than ever. Similar things during any disaster in China I've heard. Every time I feel so astonished by how selfless and united humans can be and what amazing results it can lead to (just imagine that happening across the globe, we could save the world). Unfortunately, you can't yet name any other place like this, only in China.

  • 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!
