The World Meteorological Organization announced on July 16 that torrential rain on a par with the precipitation of two months fell in two days in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.

As of July 17, the number of the dead increased to more than 130 in severely hit Germany, which means that it is the largest-scale human loss in several years.

Houses are collapsing one after another in many areas due to the worst natural catastrophe in 50 years, and the death toll is expected to rise.

Meanwhile, dams burst in the eastern and southern areas of Belgium, carrying away cars and destroying dwelling houses and shops.

Floods are claiming a growing number of deaths and missing persons.

As the water level of rivers is rising in the southern area of the Netherlands, 10 700 persons were evacuated immediately.
