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.

A dyke near Fischbeck in the state of Saxony-Anhalt was breached overnight on Monday, 10th of June, allowing floodwaters to completely inundate the village. Our photographers reached the town yesterday.

The torrent of floodwaters in Germany has turned vast areas into a brown water world, sparked a mass mobilisation of emergency workers and caused billions of euros in damage in what one lawmaker termed a "national catastrophe".

I would like to suggest you two ultra high resolution panoramas from Fishbeck and Lostau towns.

Was it rain that caused the dam to burst?

Come on now.. "flood swollen river". I don't think hail caused it.

Wow, nice pics!
Sorry to see that happen anywhere.

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!
