before i am going to share my pictures from istanbul with you guys, i would like to show you what’s going on in austria at the moment. since around 4 or 5 days huge parts of the country (mostly along the danube) are flooded with water because there were some heavy rainfalls during the weekend. as far as i’m informed, in the western parts of austira the water levels don’t rise anymore but the situation in the eastern parts of the country is still tense.
the first photo was taken in winter last year at the danube canal in vienna, this is how it usually looks like
and this is how it looked like 45 minutes ago
two days ago i was in lower austira, the situation there (and also in upper austira) is much worse than in vienna, some places couldn’t be reached anymore and a lot of people were rescued by helicopters. also the houses of many people are damaged really badly… let’s hope the situation will calm down very soon.
