The Netherlands has also been badly affected by flooding. Yesterday, thousands of people in the south of the country were urged to leave their homes early, APA reports citing BBC.
People in towns and villages along the Meuse river in Limburg province were told to seek refuge until Friday afternoon at the earliest.
Prime Minister Mark Rutte and his cabinet held a disaster meeting, and the floods in South Limburg have been declared a disaster, NL Times reports.
Rutte is set to visit areas in Limburg province later but will not visit the hardest-hit areas, urging others to stay away.
