Levels continue to rise
On Thursday, the levels on the Rhine in the region were around and in Cologne still at about 7.60 meters. The water levels rose slowly, so that the population already began to breathe easily. But on the night of Friday, the situation changed dramatically again. At the morning measurement, which took place around 6:13, a new water level of 8.01 meters was measured. Thus, the Rhine crosses the 8-meter boundary for the second time in one month, which means that the residents will have to wait a bit.
