Over a hundred dead, many more expected. Over a thousand still missing / unaccounted for, in Germany alone. Raging floods in city centers washing away cars and skips. Scenes I would've expected in movies, or in third world countries, happening in my neighboring countries. In my own country. Fifty miles from where I live.

It's terrifying. I am scared.

I'm fine. I'm safe where I am. My loved ones are fine. But, seeing all this, knowing it's happening so near ...

@Snargfargle Thank you for posting.

<Edit>

If I told you these pictures were from Katrina, or Ivan, you'd believe me

Getting out just in front of a flood 45 years ago (Big Thompson, 1976) reminds me how scary a river can be.

We were on the way there…

…car kept breaking down… :Smile_amazed:

…then we finally got there after the e fact; if on time; we’d have been in the middle of that.

Got back a year or two later, and the part of the canyon where the house we would have stayed in was, wasn’t even recognizable.

I remember when I was 6 Highland River flooded the area, around it including the town of High River and the heartland cast and crew helped everybody they could, to help the community

thats when I met Amber Marshal, Graham Wardle, Shaun Johnston, Michelle Morgan, and Chris Potter, the main cast of Heartland
