From the 12th to the 15th of July, heavy rainfall associated with cut-off low-pressure system “Bernd” led to severe flooding particularly in the German states North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate, as well as in Luxembourg, and along the river Meuse and some of its tributaries in Belgium and the Netherlands.
A new rapid analysis concludes that the extreme rainfall and flooding caused by Tropical Storm Imelda was made more likely and intense due to global warming.
