Nürburgring turned into temporary sorting center to help with flood relieve
At least 120 people have died and hundreds more in western Europe are unaccounted for after some of the worst flooding in decades.
Nürburgring has turned its GP paddock area to camp beds for over 1000 helpers from various organisations to help with the flood relieves. Many parts of popular Germany race track is converted into temporary sorting area for volunteers to coordinate the donations received.
“Working on the ring and I’m so overwhelmed by what a lot of donations have arrived here” said a volunteer at Nürburgring.
Germany is curently experiencing one of the worst floods in more than half a century. Hundreds of people are still missing or unreachable as several areas were inaccessible due to high water levels while communication in some places was still down.
The intensity and scale of the floods in Germany this week have shocked climate scientists, who did not expect records to be broken this much, over such a wide area or this soon.
