Severe floods hit Germany again, destructive tornado in Lower Saxony

A new round of heavy rains hit Germany and Austria on August 16 and 17, 2021, causing severe floods and landslides and spawning at least one destructive tornado.

One person was killed and another is still missing in Germany after sudden floods swept them away off a bridge in Höllentalklamm, a popular destination for hikers also known as Valley of Hell, Bavaria on August 16.

According to witnesses, a number of people were carried away after the wooden bridge they were standing on collapsed, prompting a major rescue operation.1 Other reports say 2 people were swept away when the bridge collapsed while others were caught by the raging water or cut off from their hiking paths by the flood elsewhere.2
