Munich / Passau - In parts of Bavaria there is still no time to take a deep breath.

Heavy rain caused great destruction at the weekend, especially in the Berchtesgadener Land district, where a disaster was declared.

There was also a serious accident: Rescue workers from the Technical Relief Organization (THW) were seriously injured in a collision *.

There are also warnings for parts of Bavaria for Sunday night, according to forecasts by the German Weather Service, it should continue to rain in the Alpine region until Monday night.

Severe floods expected: Danube level could reach 8.65 m in Passau

The Bavarian flood news service has issued warnings for the districts of Rosenheim, Mühldorf and Altötting, among others. The warning also applies to the Berchtesgadener Land district. It could be particularly difficult on Monday Passau at night, where violent floods are threatened. The water levels of the Danube and Inn have already risen significantly, the promenade and parking lots have been flooded. According to the DWD, however, the maximum values ​​are only expected for the night.

According to the flood news service, there is flood reporting level 3 on Sunday evening. However, reporting level 4 - the highest warning level - can be reached.

This means that “built-up areas are flooded to a large extent” or “large-scale use of water or dams is required”.

Accordingly, it is assumed that the level of the Danube rises to a maximum of 8.65 m at night.

A maximum level of 6.30 m at night is predicted for the Inn (reporting level 2).

City of Passau prepares for floods

The city is preparing for the impending flood.

Local residents installed flood barriers on their properties.

Roads were closed.

The city of Passau wrote on its homepage: “The local helpers have taken all the necessary measures up to the forecast maximum levels.

The forecasts of the state flood intelligence service are of course constantly monitored and the measures are adjusted accordingly if necessary. "

Apparently not everyone in Passau is aware of the danger at the moment.

On Sunday, the police had to tow cars that the owners had not reparked despite flood warnings *.

Otherwise, the "flood situation in Lower Bavaria is relaxed from the police point of view".

After the devastating flood disaster, which previously shook large areas in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate, there are now violent allegations against the federal government. * Were warnings ignored?
