Picspam: Current floods in Dresden

The past days it has rained heavily without any break. Rivers are full, ground is soaked, dams are overflowing, and people get evacuated. Several cities in four German countries are hit by the floods, as well as cities in Austria, Poland and Czech Republic.
In Dresden itself it isn't that bad (yet) but they expect it to get worse during the next days. We hope we won't get hit as bad as back in 2002, which was the flood of the millennium, or so they told us. Today I got soaked but I wanted to show you some pictures. I give also comparison pictures of my trip with the Doctor which took the same rout - so you can see what it usually looks like when there is a street instead of water.
