The fire brigade has been put on alert in the area from Auerbach to Metten, with a focus on the city of Degendorf. There were about 80 missions throughout the district, informed District Fire Inspectorate Degendorf in its final report in the evening. 60 missions were to be completed in the urban area of Degendorf. Another focus was in Neuhausen, where an oil tank was filled in a full basement. Deggendorfer Wehr sucked up the oil-water mixture with a special device.
First the streets were flooded, then basements, underpasses and underground garages were flooded. The storm also engulfed a tree in the urban area. The sand bags were supplied for quick use sometime back after the previous storm experiences in the district. Which has proved itself today. According to Poschl’s report, the sandbags can be immediately brought to the scene and used.
In the rest of Lower Bavaria, it remained calm until late on Friday, a spokesman for the Lower Bavaria Police Headquarters confirmed upon request (by 10 pm). There was silence in Upper Bavaria on Friday night as well. Here DWD has warned of continuous rain from Saturday. – PNP
