Watch these insane videos of historic flooding in Germany that has killed at least 120 people and sent 1,300 missing

Jul 16th

This is absolutely not what what comes to mind when you think of an idyllic German town:

The flooding that happened this week in Germany and other parts of Europe is the worst the region has seen in a century. Some areas had over 7 inches of rain in a matter of two or three days.

The death toll was estimated at 60 as of Friday morning and was later updated to at least 120 Friday afternoon, with over 1,300 people still missing.

From Gizmodo:

At least 120 people have died and around 1,300 people are still missing across western Europe in the wake of extreme rainfall, bursting rivers, and heavy flooding that devastated parts of Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.

The bulk of the casualties were in the German states of Rhineland-Palatinate and North Rhine-Westphalia, where authorities say some mobile networks are still out of service, making it impossible to contact people on the ground. Some 114,000 people remained without power Friday. Most of the 1,300 people unaccounted for are in the northern part of Rhineland-Palatinate.

Twelve of the casualties were individuals in a disabled care facility south of Cologne who were killed when floodwaters swept through during the night.

I'll spare you from the posts of climate alarmists shrieking about the end times on Twitter in lieu of this guy on a unicorn floaty who wasn't letting floods keep him from a good time:

I'll end on a positive note: a firefighter being saved by residents who risked the fast waters to pull him to safety. Pray for Germany!
