Retrospective flood analysis in Luxembourg, July 2021 (2022-10-15)

Collection: CEMS-RRM : CEMS Risk and Recovery Mapping 

Description


Activation date: 2022-10-15
Event type: Flood

Activation reason:


The CEMS Risk and Recovery Standard has been activated for a retrospective assessment of an extreme flooding across Western Europe in summer 2021, which had devastating impacts on Luxembourg. The regions of Born, Steinheim, Rosport and Echternach were the most affected, and the Sauer River reached approximately 9.75 metres high on the 15th July 2021: a reported 106 litres per square metre of rain fell on the 14th of July 2021, a new national record since records began nearly 170 years ago.Institute MeteoLux, the Luxembourgian meteorological institute reported torrential rains broke two records for the month of July at the weather station at Luxembourg-Findel Airport. The maximum precipitation in 12 hours and 24 hours reached accumulations of 74.2 mm and 79.4 mm, beating the previous records set on 22 July 2016 of 60.4 mm / 70.6 mm. This heavy rainfall led to a surface runoff being formed which brought local flooding with it and caused river floods.The activation will provide the RRM STANDARD products P04 Flood Delineation, P06 Temporal analysis of occurred flood events, P14 Impact assessment analyses on asset and population, for the two requested areas of interest near the capital.The results will be available after 15 November 2022.
