In Erftstadt, southwest of Cologne many people died in their homes when the ground beneath them suddenly sank, causing the houses to collapse, this was reported by the Regional Authorities.

At this time the authorities have no idea how many had died in Belgium, after the rescue team got 50 out of their homes, many are left in need of help. A report stated that 1,300 were missing, even though it is possible that duplicate reports were given because of disrupted phone service and roadways.

Several dikes were at risk of collapsing as water levels on the Meuse river running from Belgium into the Netherlands remained critical.

These floods came after heavy rainfall in Western Europe, streams and streets were turned into raging rivers. Houses and cars were swept away across the region.
