Streams and rivers, which had had very low water levels for weeks due to the drought, quickly turned into torrential rivers on Friday afternoon.

Bregenz – Heavy rain into the night of Saturday flooded numerous streets and districts in Vorarlberg in Austria. Cellars and garages were full of water, underpasses were flooded, as the police and fire department announced on Saturday.

There were also some landslides. The situation calmed down after midnight. So nobody was injured. A section of the Rheintal autobahn had to be temporarily closed. The railway line from Dornbirn in the direction of Bregenz was also temporarily closed. The Lower Rhine Valley was particularly affected.

In the village of Wolfurt, streams that burst their banks flooded the town center. According to this information, the water at Lake Constance rose by 21 centimeters from Friday morning to Saturday morning. dpa
