Flood protection Disaster and warning plan in the district of Ahrweiler still not ready

More than ten months after the flash flood in the Ahr valley, a disaster and warning plan coordinated with the municipalities is still not ready in the Ahrweiler district. The creation of an overall concept is still in its infancy, the district administration announced.

 A modern electronic siren is mounted on the roof of the community centre in Rech. Ten and a half months after the flash flood in the Ahr valley with 134 deaths, a disaster and warning plan for floods in the Ahrweiler district, coordinated with the municipalities, is still not ready.
