Global News published this video item, entitled “Germany floods: Drone footage shows devastation in Schuld after record rainfall” – below is their description.

More than 40 people have died and dozens of people are still missing in Germany after heavy flooding turned streams and streets into raging torrents, sweeping away cars and causing buildings to collapse.

Drone footage captured the devastation in the German town of Schuld, which saw its rivers burst its banks, sweeping away homes and flooded cellars.

Hundreds of soldiers were helping police with the rescue efforts, using tanks to clear roads of landslides and fallen trees, while helicopters winched those stranded on rooftops to safety.

The floods have caused Germany’s worst mass loss of life due to floods since 2002.
