Belgium hit with another bout of torrential rainfall Updated: 2021-07-26 09:52:37 KST


Just ten days after Western Europe was slammed by the heaviest rainfall it has seen this century, Belgium endured yet another round of flooding Saturday, as the country was slammed by heavy rains and thunderstorms.
The floods mostly impacted the southern region of Wallonia, with the town of Dinant seeing considerable damage, with cars swept away by flash floods.
Luckily, despite the fresh wave of torrential rain, no fatalities have been reported so far.
The latest round of flooding comes after earlier storms this month left at least 36 people dead in the country.
Belgium held a national day of mourning last Tuesday to remember the people who died.
The earlier round of torrential rain also left a trail of destruction in Germany, with at least 180 people killed and almost 150 others still missing.
The cost of recovery is expected to run into the billions of euros.
In China, Typhoon In-Fa slammed the eastern region of the country with high winds and heavy rain on Sunday, while other parts of China still recover from recent historic flooding.
The latest rainfall in China comes after torrential downpours last week dumped a year's worth of rain in just three days on the central province of Henan, killing at least 58.
China's meteorological authorities say that, after making landfall, In-Fa will weaken, but could continue to impact a wide area of eastern China for days, potentially dropping heavy rainfall on areas still recovering from last week's flooding.
