Global News published this video item, entitled “Torrent of floodwater in Belgian town washes away cars, leaves path of destruction” – below is their description.
The southern Belgian town of Dinant was hit by the heaviest floods in decades on Saturday after a two-hour thunderstorm turned streets into torrential streams that washed away cars and pavement, but did not kill anyone.
Dinant was spared the deadly floods 10 days ago that killed 37 people in southeast Belgium and many more in Germany, but the violence of Saturday’s storm surprised many.
Rainwater gushing down steep streets swept away dozens of cars, piling them in a heap at a crossing, and washed away cobbles stones, pavement and whole sections of tarmac as residents watched in horror from windows.
There was no precise estimate of the damage, with town authorities predicting only that it would be “significant,” according to Belgian RTL TV.
The storm wreaked similar havoc, also with no loss of life, in the small town of Anhee a few kilometres north of Dinant.
