Victims of catastrophic floods continue to be found in western Germany. According to the latest data, cited by Bild, there are already 133 people on the lists of the dead.

Most of the dead – 90 people, were residents of the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate.

The bodies of the rest were found during a search and rescue operation in North Rhine-Westphalia.

The number of victims has exceeded 600, the police added. Hundreds of people remain missing.

The flooding was reportedly caused by the Moselle and Ahr tributaries of the Rhine and a number of small rivers overflowing their banks due to heavy rainfall. Two monthly precipitation rates fell in two days.

There are victims of the flood in Belgium (23), to the south of which the elements fell. July 20 has been declared a day of mourning by the Belgian authorities for the victims of the natural disaster. Brussels called the flood the largest in the history of the country.

In the neighboring Netherlands, at least 10 thousand residents had to be evacuated because of the “big water”.
