“Pictures like from the war zone”: Euskirchen district administrator speaks about the flood disaster


The Euskirchen district is one of the areas in North Rhine-Westphalia hardest hit by the flood disaster. More than 20 people have died, and numerous people are still missing. Thousands of people had to be evacuated.
Sarah Brasack, deputy editor-in-chief of the Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger, speaks in the podcast “Talk mit K” with the Euskirchen district administrator Markus Ramers (SPD) about the current situation in the district, the consequences of the flood disaster and the acute challenges.

The district administrator explains what the situation at the unstable Steinbachtalsperre looks like and how the evacuation of thousands of people in a circle took place. He also explains what demands he has on the NRW state government and the federal government. “There are a lot of villages that no longer look the way you know them. These are circumstances that are otherwise known from war zones, ”he says. This situation is “psychologically very stressful”.
