Dutch army helping flooded villages

16th January 2011, Comments 0 comments


The army has been deployed to help two villages in Limburg after being cut off by the swollen river Maas.

Army trucks are ferrying people in and out of the southern villages of Bergen and Aijen. Wagons are being used to reach other villages also cut off by the floodwaters.

The water authorities expect the river waters to peak on Sunday but to remain at least half a metre below last weekend's peak level. cl
