Parts of Austria are also affected by the flood.

A raging river flooded the city center of Hallein.

Videos show the extent of the flooding.

Hallein - A calm brook turns into a dangerous river and floods a city in the Salzburger Land.

Cars, chairs, tables: everything is dragged along by the raging floods.

Videos that are circulating on the Internet show the city of Hallein near Salzburg in Austria.

There was massive flooding here on Saturday evening.

Torrential rains caused the streams to rise only a few days after the flood disaster in neighboring Germany.

"The situation is very tense, sometimes dramatic," said a police spokesman, according to various media reports on the spot.

So far, however, there has been no evidence of injuries or missing persons.

The emergency services were able to evacuate people from their homes with boats and trucks.

In other parts of Austria, too, there were torrential rains and floods on Saturday evening, similar to Bavaria.

Civil protection alarms were triggered at various locations in the federal states of Salzburg and Tyrol.

The capital Vienna also had to deal with floods.

In Germany, emergency services in Rhineland-Palatinate and North Rhine-Westphalia are still looking for missing people.
