Koblenz police said on Saturday morning that they were registering at least 90 people in connection with Thursday’s floods.
Ruins of houses and uprooted trees in Schulde, Germany, two days after the Ahr River overflowed from the riverbed.
These are the victims in the district of Ahrweiler, which is one of the most affected by floods in West Germany. The number of wounded climbed above 600, the DPA agency reported. In total, the number of victims in Germany exceeded 133.
There are fears that the number of victims will increase. Rescuers still did not see all the places and houses affected by the flood wave. Even after two days of rescue operations, many people are missing. Additionally, phones may not work in some areas. In addition, there are still many impassable roads in the Ahr River Valley, where the district is also located.
On Friday, the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, where the district of Ahrweiler is located, reported 63 victims. Another 43 dead were registered by neighboring North Rhine-Westphalia, and two deaths from Wednesday were also reported by Saarland. German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier will visit the area affected by the natural disaster on Saturday.
