How high’s the water, mama? As of this morning, just about 6 meters high and rising.
It’s getting higher all the time, and not expected to drop any time soon. The emergency flood barriers are coming out and even the beloved Weenie Shack has its shields up. The City of Regensburg advises moving parked cars out of parking lots and underground garages near the riverbanks, and preparing basements for flooding. more info > about the new garages being put up. Beyond that, it’s COLD. Highs in the low 50s°F. I guess I retired my winter jacket to the attic storage too early this year.
Edit: Here are some pics from the last little bit of daylight yesterday evening.
We heard from a friend that a crest was expected around 1:00 this morning. However, the BavarianFlood Information Service makes it look like we’re in for still more rising action (as of about 05:00 this morning).
