Photographer's Note

Temporarily uninhabited houses at Sinzig.
The dark markings on the walls show that that this street was overflooded by more than 2 meters, despite its distance of 350 m from normal Ahr bank.
People lost their complete possessions stored in basement and first floor and kept only what they had in higher floors. But their houses are still standing.

Upstream, the situation is even worse. 500 buildings have been destroyed completely, 800 suffered severe damage and 3000 might be affected. 62 bridges can be written off.

Donations are very welcome. For a list of donation accounts see the homepage of SWR broadcasting station: (only in German).
