Horrific Aerial Photos / A lifeguard is about to drown
The regional government of Cologne (Regierungsbezirk Köln) shared photos of Blessem, part of Erftstadt municipality, on Twitter. Damage after partial withdrawal of water is catastrophic. In a field adjacent to the apartment complex, rising water caused a landslide.
Fatalities have been reported in the landslide. Several people were also reported missing, although emergency services were unable to provide the numbers. “Emergency calls are coming from homes, but rescue is not possible at the moment,” the regional government wrote on Twitter. “Our response to disasters on Earth.”
According to German media, emergency services are immediately understaffed. Emergency services also discovered a gas leak that they could not deal with, further complicating the operation.
