Event type: Flood (Riverine flood)
Strong thawing and rainfall beginning in the last days of January 2021 and ongoing resulted in moderate floodings especially in several parts of Southern and Western Germany. As the water levels are still expected to rise, particularly in the lower catchment areas of the River Rhine, the governmental district of Düsseldorf requested activation of CEMS Rapid Mapping to visualize the current extent of the floodings and to monitor the situation on a daily basis.
