Towns and villages have been left devastated as buildings collapsed, and residents were left stranded.

Germany has been the hardest hit. In the country's most populous state, North Rhine-Westphalia, at least 43 people died in the flooding.

In the Rhineland-Palatinate, more than 60 people have been reported dead. About 1,300 people are unaccounted for in the Ahrweiler region, possibly due to mobile networks being down.

A state of emergency has been declared in the rural German village of Schuld, with a population of 700, where the devastation has been described as "simply catastrophic".
