Highwater in Saale River

Due to heavy snow melting as the temperature turns to be ‘mild’ and simultaneous rainfall, 2011’s Winter highwater is the highest since 1946 in the Saale river in Halle (Saxony-Anhalt). The flood water reached a maximum of 6.92 m on the gauge of Halle Trotha. A record of 7 m would cause a ‘disaster alarm’. 

Some dikes are needed to be stabilized, but the overall flood situation in the Saale Valley is under control. 

Here are some photos of the floodwater in Halle:
