Current Event Juni

After a long winter full of snow, and a late spring, Germany was ready to welcome summer and the sun. However, May showers (or deluges) brought June...showers. Since the beginning of June, much of Germany has been on flood alert and cities such as Dresden and Leipzig have experienced serious flooding as rivers overrun their banks. The danger has touched multiple states in northern, southern and eastern Germany. Thousands have been forced to leave their homes, with damage to homes and other buildings in worth of millions of euros. Some whole towns and areas are still under water. Infrastructure such as streets, bridges and the infamous autobahn have also suffered damage, which in turn damages the economies of affected areas. Still more tragic is the loss of whole businesses, houses and enterprises which may not receive adequate insurance coverage, turning lives and livelihoods literally inside out.
The measure of the floods have topped the so-called 'Century Floods' of January 2002, making a new record.
