German floods leave fears of public-health catastrophe in their wake | DW News



Authorities in western Germany are rushing to clear mountains of debris and restore vital services after devastating floods last week. Many areas were left without access to drinking water after the floodwaters damaged waste water treatment plants. And concerns are now mounting over an environmental and public health catastrophe as sewage flows into rivers. More rain is forecast, complicating the clean-up.
Meanwhile, social media has played a key role in connecting people affected by the flooding with volunteers who want to offer support. DW reporter Tessa Walther visited one town where a group of Syrian refugees answered the call for help.

  1. youtube germany (so many big youtubers from GER) have created streams where you can donate, where you can collect money for the victims over 200 twitch streamers / youtubers have contributed the money is donated to organizations and cities. So far you have collected almost 500,000 euros (= 588,565.00 US dollars), which is a cool promotion.

  3. Because the finest river filtering capacities are provided by biological systems, they should be humanly expedited to be in place throughout all of downstream pollution sources. Frame: logs & rocks etc, Growing Plants, Seeding …all proven organic waterway filtering systems. Encourage estuaries.

  4. Love this response. Such a catastrophe. This extended lockdown, has resulted in people realizing, the importance of family gatherings, neighbors helping neighbors, coming together no matter what your race, culture, religion or not. No talk of social distancing, or whether you are vaxed or not. Love this!
