Another deadly flood wave hits southern Germany

Posted by Elena Ugrin on June 02, 2016 in categories Featured articles, Floods


More deadly floods hit the state of Bavaria in Germany on June 1, 2016. The region was reportedly devastated, at least 5 people died, and several others went missing. A state of emergency has been declared in the Rottal-Inn, the worst affected district, by Michael Fahmüller, the District Administrator.
The second deadly flood wave hit the state only several days after heavy rainfalls devastated the Baden-Wuerttemberg region, killing at least 4 people. 
The rivers in Rottal-Inn overflowed their banks, trapping residents in their homes, and leaving about 9 000 people without the power supplies. Three people died in their houses in Simbach an Inn on June 1. One person died in Julbach while the other was found on June 2, according to the local police.

According to Floodlist, the raging floodwaters swept away the vehicles, trees and furniture from devastated homes across the streets in Triftern and Tann. Several people were forced to seek shelters on their rooftops while waiting for the rescue teams to arrive by helicopters. 650 rescue workers were deployed from emergency and police teams.
14 students were left trapped overnight in a school in Triftern before they were saved. The police have warned the people to avoid dangerously flooded areas of Aimbach am Inn, Tann, Triftern, Zeilarn, Anzenkirchen, Kirchdorf am Inn, Lanhofen, Untertürken, Bad Griesbach and Ruhstorf an der Rott. The Passau city reported minor flooding.

The river levels of the Altbach river have swollen up to 250 cm (8.2 feet) in the period between the evening of May 31 and midday of June 1 (local time). By the evening of June 1, the levels measured little below 345 cm (11.3 feet), and have, thus, beaten the old record of 322 cm (10.6 feet) set in August 1991. By June 2, the levels receded to 122 cm (4 feet).
The levels of the Inn River at Simbach measured below 1 m (3.3 feet) at 04:00 on June 1 (local time), and climbed up to 480 cm (15.7 feet) by 14:00, topping the old record of 150 cm (4.9 feet), reported in June 2007. Since then, the water levels receded to normal at about 57 cm (1.9 feet).

Record-breaking floods continue in Texas, state of disaster declared for 31 counties

Posted by Elena Ugrin on June 02, 2016 in categories Featured articles, Floods, Severe storms


Another spell of severe weather brought intense thunderstorms, accompanied by heavy rainfall, to southeast Texas on the morning of June 2, 2016 (local time). Torrential  downpours have triggered another wave of floods across the already soaked regions. While the Brazos River reached the highest water level reported over the last 100 years, Greg Abbott, the Governor of Texas declared a state of disaster for 31 counties.
Numerous streets were flooded across the affected counties, schools were closed, and traffic disrupted. A portion of the Interstate 35 in San Antonio was closed and, at least, two rescue operations have been conducted since the morning, one of which near the Lackland Air Force Base.
The rainfall rate up to 76.2 mm (3 inches) per hour was recorded according to Jonathan Erdman, a meteorologist.
The flooding along the banks of Brazos River is currently causing troubles while a flood wave which has been expected to move down the Medina River during the morning could seriously impact properties situated near Castroville.

Communities including Richmond, Rosenberg, and the Fort Bend were seriously affected by the ongoing flood wave. Hundreds of people had to leave their home before the water levels of the Brazos River reached 16.6 m (54.37 feet) in Fort Bend. According to media reports, such water levels hadn't been reported for more than 100 years. According to Scott Overpeck, an NWS meteorologist, the water levels will recede over the next couple of days although they will stay high for about three weeks as the water will require releasing from the upriver reservoirs. 
"There's so much water on the Brazos that it's going to take a long time to drain through the whole river and drain out into the Gulf of Mexico," explained Overpeck. The Sheriff's Office reported all the ways in or out of the community will have to remain closed until the water withdraws. 
Numerous water rescues have taken place throughout the morning and early afternoon in Rosenburg.

The chaotic flooding hadn't stopped in Texas since the Memorial Day weekend when record-breaking rainfall caused the deaths of 6 people across the affected areas. In Fort Bend County only, about 1 000 people had been evacuated, as of May 31. Due to the rising water levels of the Colorado River, the local officials announced the closure of Lake Austin, Lady Bird Lake, and the downstream region of Longhorn Dam.
Flash flood warning has been issued for portions of central Texas by the National Weather Service (NWS) on the morning of June 2(local time). The majority of the state has been put on a flash flood watch, as the slow-moving weather system is threatening to continue affecting the region. 
"The state of Texas stands ready to assist all counties affected by severe weather and has dedicated the resources necessary to ensure the safety of those at risk," said Governor Abbott.

According to the NWS, a slow moving frontal boundary will continue moving over the southern Plains and lower Mississippi Valley throughout the day, producing showers and thunderstorms. Abundant rainfall amounts between 25.4 and 76.2 mm (1 and 3 inches) are possible in parts of the southern Plains and western Gulf Coast. The front is expected to become stationary over Texas on June 3, bringing showers and thunderstorms from the eastern half of the state to the eastward, and to the lower Mississippi Valley through the morning of June 4 (local time).

Historic flooding still affects parts of France, red alerts for flood remain in effect

After heaviest late May rainfall since records began, flooding is still affecting large areas of France, most notably the East, West, and Paris. Meteorologists warn the waters are expected to keep rising for several more days.
The River Seine has overflowed its banks in several places swamping roads and forcing people out of their homes. The flooding has claimed its first victim on June 1, an 88-year-old woman that drowned in Souppes Sur Loing, east of Paris. The town of Nemours, southeast of the capital, has been worst hit.
Two departments (Seine-et-Marne and Loiret) remain on red alert for floods on June 2, with a further eight at orange alert (Cher, Indre, Indre-et-Loire, Loir-et-Cher, Meurthe-et-Moselle, Meuse, Moselle, and Essonne).
On June 1, large-scale evacuations were conducted following the rising water levels, especially in Seine-et-Marne, in the Yvelines and the Loiret. Approximately 2 060 people were evacuated from Nemours (Seine-et-Marne) and 1 300 in Souppes-sur-Loing.
City Hall in Paris closed roads along the Seine from the Left Bank in the east to the Eiffel Tower in the west, as river levels rose at least 4.3 meters (14.1 feet).

In some regions the equivalent of one and a half months of rain has fallen in just three days changing the landscape beyond recognition, Euronews reports.
Water levels are expected to keep rising for several more days. Paris area expects the peak in the coming days.
