Прорыв дамбы на Эльбе прервал судоходство по реке

На востоке Германии дамба не выдержала напора переполненной проливными дождями Эльбы. В результате хлынувший поток заставил тысячи людей покинуть свои дома в окрестностях Магдебурга (земля Саксония-Анхальт). Уровень воды в городе достиг в минувшее воскресенье 7,44 метра, почти в четыре раза превысив стандартные показатели.


Более 23 тысяч жителей города были эвакуированы из-за затопления. Защиты от наводнений на Эльбе оказалась ослаблена в результате длительных обильных дождей. Теперь под угрозой прорыва еще один участок плотины. Более 8 тысяч человек вывезены на автобусах из населенных пунктов вокруг Акена, к югу от Магдебурга.


Еще на прошлой неделе круизные компании отменили круизы по Эльбе на ближайшие две недели. В связи с последними событиями круизы отменены на неопределенный срок – до восстановления судоходства по Эльбе.


Изменения VIking River Cruises

1. June 12th Grand European Tour (Budapest to Amsterdam) aboard Viking Sky — This cruise will begin on Viking Legend. Due to water levels, the ship will not be in the normal port of embarkation.
