Current flooding situations in Germany

The Website “Hochwasserportal” gives an actual ovberview on the current flood situation in Germany as many rivers (e.g. Donau, Elbe, Rhein) are currently bursting their banks in this time. To which situations flooding desasters could breed to, could for example be watched on Youtube:

Such situations make clear, that flood risk management is an important and still demanding field of activity. The SeCom20-project could indeed not do the job of building active flood defence, but could lead to fostering the awareness of such situations and helping to understand what should be done before, in and after flooding occured. This will hopefully be a contribution to inducing a future without having the in- and after-situations.
