Inside one flood-wrecked house in Germany as people begin to rebuild – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Marion Wenzel showed us around her home that has been totally destroyed by the “catastrophic” flooding that hit Germany.

Her possessions lie in ruins, but her three children were able to get out alive.

As waters recede, the scale of the damage is becoming clear. Dozens have died across regions of Germany and Belgium, and many are still missing.

European leaders have blamed climate change for the floods, which have also affected Switzerland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.

If only the dam that burst in Wesenburg had been maintained or checked. Like a domino effect with the other rivers and dams. Such a shame.

I wish you all the very best. So sad. I stayed in the Rhineland and around those places. Beautiful areas and people. Respect from the UK. 🙏🙏

You have just enough time before winter. Start by telling yourself it will not be easy but it will not be impossible. Take picnic in the park breaks to get away for a couple of hours so you can recharge. Hope you have the extra money you need. We had a bad situation in Texas in February. Pipes breaking ruining things, I got overwhelmed. You really have to concentrate on doing a certain amount each day and not work from sunup to sundown, it takes a toll and things don’t go right. Maybe have an hour set aside to meet friends at a beer hall to compare notes. You can see I’m pushing a little tine away from it because that was my mistake. Next year this will be a memory. Take photos do you can see the progress. Wish I could help.

Do not comply,. No to vaccine passports, no to mandatory vaccines. No to masks, no to tests, a total disgrace.

I still can never get over the sheer amount of mud in these floods. This woman looked like she got away very lightly.

When you have no money, no house to live in, no bed to sleep in, no food to eat, no fresh water to drink or to bathe in, all your memories on paper are destroyed and you only have YOURSELF, what do YOU have to offer to your brothers & sisters? Let that sink in!

The reason why I ask this question is: mankind is so damaged and braindead, they have truly no clue what to do with their lives, when ☝🏽 above overcome to them.

I can tell you all, this is NOTHING in comparison what is exploding in a short period of time, and nobody is prepared for it. Why? Cause mankind lives under hypnoses money is the only source to STAY ALIVE!
Sick lying society we live in!

Human think they were better than God ,but God use natural forces to destroy ,and there is now law in nature ,because there are god things ,but you remember the saying we have to die of hour old ways ,before we can live ,a true life ,know it is just the beginning .it look like 2021 is 2012 but the other way round ,you see ,all those floods around the world and earthquake will effect the economy ,if there was one ,and people lifes shocking . So is Britain' ready ,are they still wasting time .close the gap between rich and poor now in Britain ,every company must give jobs to black people and British people too ,wake up uk wake up London wake up grate-Britain wake up England .🇬🇧🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

How do you even begin to recover from something this devastating? At my age I would not have the strength to start over again…
