German floods: More heavy rain expected as people return home | DW News

DW News published this video item, entitled “German floods: More heavy rain expected as people return home | DW News” – below is their description.

In western Germany, people are returning to towns and villages wrecked by devastating floods – which left more than 200 people dead across several western European countries. Now, weather forecasters have announced there’s more rain to come, causing new worries for people still busy digging through the mud, and trying to come to terms with their losses.

With cleanup efforts underway, the extent of the damage for businesses is becoming clear. Anger is swelling up about why multiple systems designed to warn people of the impending disaster all failed. With more heavy rains expected in the coming days, locals fear that this may not be the last of their sorrows, and that the waters may rise again.
