Severe Flooding Carries Vehicles and Leaves Damage in Dinant, Belgium

Heavy rainfall in the city of Dinant, Belgium, on July 24 caused severe flooding less than two weeks after storms left at least 36 dead in the country.

Footage taken in Dinant, which is situated on the banks of the river Meuse, shows cars being carried down a street by rushing water, towards the center of the city.

Belgium’s national crisis center said “about thirty cars were dragged along by the water and several streets were closed.” The center added that the city’s train station was impacted and local fire brigades were receiving many calls for assistance. Officials said no casualties had been reported. Credit: Eliane Damoisiaux via Storyful
