Torrential rainfall in Saxony and Bavaria (South of Germany) caused rapid increase of river levels over the weekend.

A state of emergency has been declared in the cities of Passau and Rosenheim. The Bavaria flood alert service forecasts heavy rains to worsen, affecting the Danube and Inn rivers. Other affected states are Saxony, Thuringia and Baden-Wuerttemberg.

Emergency and rescue efforts are under way, and the army has been deployed to support flood affected areas after reaching record levels of flooding.
