In June 2024, southern Germany experienced severe flooding due to heavy rainfall, particularly affecting the states of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg. The flooding has led to the death of at least 5 people, with thousands evacuated from their homes and significant damage to infrastructure.

As of 4 June, rescue efforts are ongoing, with over 20,000 people involved in operations across the affected regions. A state of emergency has been declared in Bavaria, and the German Weather Service warns of continued heavy rain in southern and eastern parts of the country. The floods have also impacted Austria and Hungary as the Danube River levels continue to rise.

Amidst the devastation, local communities have come together to support one another. Volunteers and emergency services personnel are working tirelessly to provide aid and shelter to those affected by the floods. Personal stories of loss, resilience, and solidarity are emerging as residents grapple with the aftermath of this natural disaster.

The current flooding draws comparisons to previous major flood events in Germany, such as those in 2002 and 2013. Experts point to the increasing frequency and intensity of such events as evidence of the impact of climate change. Chancellor Olaf Scholz, who visited the affected areas, emphasized the need to address the challenges posed by man-made climate change.
