This summer has been particularly rich in natural disasters that have hit Europe. The old world continues to be plagued by high temperatures, followed by heavy rains.

But in the German city of Reutlingen (Baden-Württemberg) snowplows had to be taken to the streets: heavy hail fell on Friday.

The diameter of the hailstones reached 2 cm and in a few minutes they turned Reutlingen into a real snow kingdom: the ice layer reached 30 cm in height and did not melt for a long time. In addition, the hail clogged almost all the drains and sewers. Water flooded basement floors and underground garages.

To overcome the consequences of bad weather, the mayor’s office had to resort to snow plowing equipment, as well as call 250 rescuers.

And in Slovenia the heavy rains continue, causing devastating floods. Flood damage as a result of heavy rains will exceed 500 million euros. This was stated by Prime Minister Robert Golob.

The Koroska region, located on the border with Austria, suffered the most. Thousands of people had to be evacuated there because of the floods. It is reported that many infrastructure facilities (bridges, power lines, roads) have been destroyed; There are interruptions in the supply of electricity and water. At least three people have died.

In the village of Mengesh, the water began to arrive suddenly. Dramatic images of the evacuation of children from kindergarten spread around the world. All of them have been safely delivered to a safe place.

Forecasters say that precipitation in Slovenia will stop only in the second decade of August and does not exclude new floods.
