The WMO official said that the scenes in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands are definitely shocking this week. He warned that under the climate change scenario, we will see more such incidents in the scorching heat. ۔
The World Meteorological Organization says Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands have received two months of rain in just two days from July 14 to 15, which is extremely dangerous. More deaths have been confirmed, while more people are still missing in large areas.
WMO spokeswoman Claire Knowles said the floods had also undermined security measures taken by developed countries, with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres saying in a statement. Europe is ready, but when it rains for two months in two days, it becomes very difficult to cope.
