ARCHIVE. Flooding in Germany, Lostau village, 2013
Some 23,000 people were forced to leave their homes in the east German after a dam burst on the flood-swollen River Elbe. In Magdeburg, the capital of Saxony-Anhalt state, flood waters rose to 7.44m (24ft), nearly four times higher than normal (2m) - forcing some 10% of the population, 23,000, to leave their homes. On our panoramas you can see how people of Lostau, a small town near Magdeburg, are working hard to protect their houses.
