Whole areas washed away by the floods, entire villages wiped out, houses destroyed. More than 160 people have died. Despite excellent infrastructure and sound disaster relief, the effects of extreme weather on Germany are devastating.

On the night of 15 July, storms destroyed whole swaths of land in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate. Shortly afterwards, heavy rain ravaged Bavaria and wreaked havoc in the Netherlands, Austria, and Belgium. Only in the days that followed did the full extent of the catastrophe become apparent.

Now, people are returning to their homes, or what’s left of them. They are overwhelmed by their own helplessness and by the force and speed with which entire livelihoods have been wiped out. Now, the big cleanup begins-which will take years. How are people in the affected regions coping?

The cataclysms will continue. Listen to what the scientists are saying. All people on the planet need to unite and build a Creative Society. On 24.07.21 there was a conference called "Global Crisis. This Already Affects Everyone ". People connected from 180 countries. There was simultaneous interpretation in 72 languages. Only through unity can we survive. Watch the conference. The fate of our civilisation is being decided.

Humans think they are very clever. Where water runs, they will always go back to the place where they originally run for hundreds of years. It will always be! The so-called smart and clever engineering and development think they can change it. Never built and develop where the river beds are .... no one can control the flow of water, it will go where it has ORIGINALLY flowed! The old aboriginal and original people of the land know this phenomenon. "An idealist is like someone who just finds out that roses smell good, so he thinks it will make a good soup." Just like building a house on the riverbed.

"O mundo é um grande teatro! Final do mundo não existe, são para os teóricos da conspiração ocorre são renovações/recomeços e eventos a Terra continua como ocorreu em várias civilizações ex: Extinção dos Dinossauros, Sumérios, Incas, Maias, Astecas os egípcios .. TUDO MUDOU NADA VAI SER COMO ERA ANTES, a Geração vai presenciar o fim de um grande império e o início de outro os nossos antepassados já sobreviveram a situações como essa , a vida humana sempre foi assim... "O MUNDO NÃO VAI ACABAR ... Mateus cap 24 - Cita Eventos do fim do sistema , Eclesiastes 1:4 Sistema corrupto vai ter fim".

🙏🏼 i thought this can only happen in our beloved country (Philippines) . That’s not new to us but to see fellow earth dweller like German people its really shocking & disheartening to see them experience something what Philippines yearly experience during rainy month. On the other side solidarity and help was there 🙏🏼 trying to be positive in that crisis .. God is good because He sent angel in disguise coming from unaffected with the flooding willing to help fellow Germanian. There must be a message from God with this kind of crisis despite that were facing still under covid19 herd immunization. #Prayer4protection

Tragic, seems the mud and no running water make cleaning up difficult if not impossible, and what to do with the unsalvageable or to even determine what salvageable, nice to see how people have come together to help…

Time like this the self priority is saving lives rather than overthinking invested material things that can be replace later. Solidarity and teamwork ing support for each other in a community is one good solution to re build again what was left. Be always prepared for every natural disaster that may come and go with our daily lives. To the generous people of Germany may you have a speedy recovery from this devastation that caused starting point re building commitment for a new and strong means of life survival.

The atmosphere is a mess because of the worldwide droughts, forest/wild fires, volcanoes-emissions spewing, and ice melts. Any atmospheric clouds either evaporate or accumulate to create super cells, like the rains in Europe. The earth is parched, so when it is inundated with water, it doesn’t absorb. People will not be settling adjacent to bodies of water after seeing the devastating effects of doing so in this day and age.

How ignorant can one be to still be blaming the rivers n God!! Geez....mankind really needs to die now, wiped off the face of Mother Earth for her other innumerable children to live in peace n for Mother Earth to recover herself. N so she will. Mankind is too arrogant to think they can win over nature but we swiftly forget that Mother Earth was there long beforewe were even born n she will be there even after we r long gone.

We’ve sin against a Holy God ruin His earth 🌍 bc we are out of control globally. So much civil unrest, hatred Division, human trafficking, killings like abortion, greed, lust, selfishness, ages on abuse & morally decayed war, unfaithfulness, evil caurosing, etc etc. We need God to forgive & save us through His Son & be a part what’s He allowing to get our attention in fullfilling Bible Prophcey before He comes back the 2nd time not as a Saviour but as a Judge you can hate Him for what’s happening but He is a Holy Righteous God powerful no man can overight His end sin on the His earth but gave us a way thru Christ to conform to His Holiness & be spared from His wrath
