German weather service spokesman Andreas Friedrich told CNN, "In some areas, we have not seen this much rainfall in 100 years."

German broadcaster Deutsche Welle said most of the fatalities were in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate, while 1,300 people are missing in the Ahrweiler region, southwest of Bonn, where the Ahr river, which flows into the Rhine, burst its banks.
