A large area of the Belgian city of Dinant has been inundated and water is pouring into the streets after heavy rain on Saturday.
It’s the Belgian newspaper reports Standard.
The country is also affected by severe thunderstorms, and the province of Namur is particularly vulnerable.
Pictures on social media from Dinant show the cars floating in water 1.5 meters deep. According to local media, at least 25 cars had to be hit.
– I’ve never experienced anything like this. And I’ve lived next to La Meuse (the river that runs through town) for 56 years, says the town’s former mayor, Richard Forneau.
VG talks to him via SMS. He says the worst damage is close to where he lives, especially the railways and buildings near a nearby station that were badly damaged.
– He’s so sad. But luckily there are no injuries this time around, Fornaux says of the situation.
What do the injuries look like now?
We’ll probably first see how bad it is in the morning light. “I asked that we open a place now where the local community can gather,” says Furno.
A little further north in the country, near the city of Namur, the storm also led to many damages and floods. Many of them are said to have been evacuated from their homes. There must be many small landslides in the area.
Videos on social media from the Netherlands also show torrential rain.
The new rains also caused unrest in western Germany, just days after storms led to flooding that killed at least 179 people, according to the NTB.

Residents have been offered evacuation in many areas already severely affected by the floods.
People should make the decision for themselves, says Hermann, who stresses that the reported showers are not expected to be as small as those that struck earlier this month.
At the same time, she reports, the sewage and sewage systems are still malfunctioning, which means they may not be able to handle the new rain well.
At least 200 people died as a result of the severe weather that recently ravaged Central Europe.
In southwestern Germany, homes have collapsed, cars have swept the streets, and hospitals are struggling to cope with the influx of dead and wounded.
Climate scientists warn that climate change is usIt leads to heavy rains and torrential rains in the future. The research shows that there is indeed a strong increase in heavy rainfall in areas that have experienced heavy rainfall before.
