Germania: atteso il picco dell'Elba

Dimensioni di testo Aa Aa

La Germania rimane alle prese con la piena dell’Elba, che si sposta verso nord.
La rottura di una diga a Fischbeck ha reso necessaria l’evacuazione di centinaio di abitanti di 4 località. Treni deviati per la chiusura di un ponte.

A Magdeburgo, dove migliaia di persone sono state sgomberate, l’Elba ha cominciato a decrescere, mentre nel Brandeburgo e in Bassa Sassonia il picco è atteso nelle prossime ore.

La cancelliera Angela Merkel ha continuato il suo giro di visite nelle regioni colpite, fermandosi a Wittenberge.

“È impressionante vedere le persone che aiutano volontariamente – ha commentato – e anche coloro che organizzano i soccorsi professionalmente. Posso dire a nome del governo che abbiamo scelto la strada degli aiuti immediati, senza burocrazia, questa è la prima cosa che possiamo fare ora. Sappiamo che i danni ammonteranno a vari miliardi di euro.”

Situazione ancora difficile in Polonia, dove il nubifragio di domenica ha quasi paralizzato Varsavia.

Quattro stazioni della metropolitana allagate, circolazione dei treni interrotta per oltre due ore.

Molte le strade sommerse. I pompieri sono dovuti intervenire in un centinaio di casi.
