floods again

Look at this! I almost feel guilty because there is nothing nearly like this here in my area.

Village 'Fischerdorf' in Bavaria today - not so far away from here though. Over lunch we heard the call for all people to immediately leave the village. A dam broke. There was also the call to go to neighbours who possibly don't speak German well or at all and 'force' them to go right away. We thought that this was way overreacting. And now the pictures!  Imagine you are there and don't understand the radio message. Makes  me cry.

Ar the moment we are getting images of the floods in masses. One kind of gets used to them. This one really struck me though. It is like someone hits you with a hammer. This is not somewhere far away on another continent, this is in your neighborhood!!!
