An aerial view showing the areas around Zschierer Strasse flooding along the Elbe River in Dresden,�Germany, 04 June 2013. The water levels in the Elbe River are rising causing floods. Thousands of emergency workers and ordinary citizens across Central Europe were battling floodwaters amid fears that the death toll of 13 would rise as the region’s rivers reach historic highs. The floods - which have engulfed an area stretching from southern Germany to Poland, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Austria - have also left several people missing and led to mass evacuations after days of torrential rain triggered the surging floodwaters.
