Mosel (Moselle) River Flooding in Germany, Traben-Trarbach, January 8, 2011

We have Mosel River flooding in Traben-Trarbach, Germany today, January 8, 2011, because balmy temperatures have caused a rapid snow melt, filling streams and rivers. I took these photographs this afternoon, which show that the situation in Traben-Trarbach, where the Mosel River is very wide, is not as dramatic as in towns like Zell and Cochem, where the flooding is much more intense because the river is much narrower there, forcing the water up.

Rain is forecast in the next 24 hours, so one can only hope that it is not too much rain, otherwise, the Mosel River could rise further. River levels in our area of Germany can be found at this Palatinate website: Rheinland-Pfalz Hochwassermeldedienst - Landesamt für Umwelt, Wasserwirtschaft und Gewerbeaufsicht
