  • Description

    MELTING SNOW AND TORRENTIAL RAIN BROUGHT WIDESPREAD FLOODING TO BELGIUM YESTERDAY (MONDAY). THE PROVINCE OF LIEGE WAS BADLY HIT. SWOLLEN RIVERS OVERFLOWED THEIR BANKS AND FLOODWATER COVERED HUNDREDS OF ACRES OF FARMLAND, CUTTING ROADS AND ISOLATING HOUSES AND HAMLETS.

    OFFICIALS SAID THE RIVER MEUSE WAS AS MUCH AS NINE FEET (THREE METRES) ABOVE ITS NORMAL LEVEL IN SOME PLACES.

    THERE WERE NO IMMEDIATE REPORTS OF CASUALTIES, HOWEVER, AS CLEANING-UP OPERATIONS GOT UNDERWAY. AND ONE FISHING ENTHUSIAST ACTUALLY BENEFITTED FROM THE FLOODS. HE CAUGHT A TROUT IN A FLOODED VILLAGE STREET.
