High Water!

In many parts of Saxony and Bavaria, there is springtime high water and flooding at the moment. This year there's more than there normally is, because there was a great deal of snow this winter, plus it got warm quickly and rained at the same time in the Czech Republic, sending an awful lot of water our way. This has caused a lot of headaches and concern for many people who live near the river. Hopefully this weekend was as bad as it will get, there are plenty of people with water in their basements and who've even hadto leave their homes . Here's a look at things here in Dresden on the Elbe...

This view of the city may look normal, but usually there is a lot less water.
