Heavy rain and continuous rain: When rain becomes a real danger

The German Meteorological Service usually specifies the amount of rain in liters per square meter. What that means and when heavy rain and continuous rain become a danger.

Cologne – It has been around two weeks since severe storms with heavy rain caused destruction and devastation in North Rhine-Westphalia *. The districts of Euskirchen *, the Rhein-Erft district * and the Rhein-Sieg district * were particularly affected. The German Weather Service (DWD) warned in advance with a storm warning of the highest level of the rain masses. 24RHEIN * reports from what amount of rain it becomes really dangerous and what warning levels there are for rain at the DWD *.

During the flood disaster caused by “Bernd”, up to 200 liters of rain per square meter fell in some places within just 48 hours. It was particularly precarious that there was not only brief, heavy rain, but also extreme continuous rain in many places. This led to severe flooding. (bs) * 24RHEIN is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA
