El temporal continúa anegando Centroeuropa

En el norte de Alemania la crecida del río Elba ha provocado la rotura de un dique. Una situación que ha obligado a las autoridades a evacuar a cientos de habitantes de cuatro pueblos de la zona.

La canciller alemana, Angela Merkel, continúa su gira por las regiones más afectadas y ha prometido toda la ayuda federal posible a las decenas de miles de damnificados. Se calcula que serán necesarios unos 1.000 millones de euros para arreglar la situación.

“Es impresionante ver a la gente, a los que echan una mano voluntariamente y también a los que lo organizan profesionalmente. Tengo que decir que en el Gobierno federal hemos escogido una forma de ayuda inmediata y no burocrática que ayuda. Es la primera cosa que podemos hacer. Pero sabemos que los daños serán de varios miles de millones de euros”, decía Merkel.

El temporal también está azotando Polonia. El domingo, las inundaciones provocaron la paralización casi completa de Varsovia. En total cayeron más de 30 litros por metro cuadrado durante tres horas.

Una de las principales arterias que cruzan la capital estaba totalmente inundada.
