I Have Never Seen The Righteous Forsaken or Begging For Rain…
Update (7-17-21): At least 125 people have died and 1,300 unaccounted for after devastating floods ripped through western Germany and Belgium.
Rescuers are frantically searching flooded towns in Rhineland-Palatinate, a southwest German state bordered by France, Belgium, Luxembourg, and North-Rhine Westphalia, a western German state.
Thousands of people are homeless, and the German army has deployed 900 soldiers to assist rescuers and the clean-up effort.
The photographs below show the extent of the damage. Some meteorologists have said the weather event was considered a “100-year rainstorm.”

At least 1,300 people are still unaccounted for Friday after flash floods in western Germany and Belgium left more than 100 dead and several towns devastated. Rescue efforts continue for the second day as the true extent of this tragedy is only being revealed as floodwaters recede.
According to CNN, 103 people have died in Germany following torrential rainfalls that swept through the country on Wednesday and Thursday. So far, authorities are saying that 1,300 people are missing and the Europe-wide death toll is 117.
The death toll in Rhineland-Palatinate, a southwest German state bordered by France, Belgium, and Luxembourg, has soared to at least 60, the state premier Malu Dreyer said Friday.
Dreyer said there was bad news every hour as rescue efforts continue to find more bodies.
“We have 60 dead to mourn at the moment, and it is to be feared that the number will rise even further,” she told reporters, adding, “We have not yet reached the stage where we can say that situation is easing.”
In North-Rhine Westphalia, a western German state, 43 have been confirmed dead, the state’s Interior Ministry spokeswoman Katja Heins told CNN.
Armin Laschet, North-Rhine Westphalia’s state premier, said the flooding is “a catastrophe of historic proportions,” adding that more fatalities are expected.
Officials believe the high number of people missing was due to a telecommunications blackout after floodwaters knocked out critical telecommunications infrastructure.
Andreas Friedrich, a German weather service spokesman, said the weather event had “very severe precipitation” and was equivalent to about two months of rain.
Axios said, “the rainfall amounts had around a 1% chance of occurring in an individual year, making it a 100-year rainstorm.”
AP reports the German Army dispatched 900 troops to heavily impacted states to assist with rescue efforts.

Here in Germany, dozens have died in floods, hundreds are missing, thousands have lost their homes. It’s devastating. This is the climate crisis unravelling in one of the richest parts of the world — which for a long time thought it would be “safe”.

Let Me Make This Abundantly Clear. (I Am Apolitical) While I Have a General Distaste for Politicians No Matter the Party They Belong To, I Am Unashamedly Politically a Bible Believing Conservative Christian. I Have a Severe Distrust of Government. I Believe It Is the Most Inefficient and Ineffective Way to Accomplish Most Things. While I Strongly Disagree with Liberals/Progressives and Conservative on Most Political Issues, and While I Believe Liberals/Progressives and Most Politicians Are Terribly Misguided and Naive About What Big Government Will Eventually Result In, I Strive to Not Question Their Motives. at the Same Time, While I Find Myself in Agreement with Conservative Politicians on Some Issues, I Do Not Believe Electing Republicans Is the Answer to Everything. for Me, Very Sadly, the Main Difference Between Republicans and Democrats Is How Quickly They Want to Drive the Car Towards the Cliff. Simply Put, I Do Not Believe the Government Is the Solution for Everything. I Do Not Place Any Faith, Trust, or Hope in Any Politicians to Fix What Is Wrong with the World. “Come Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20)
