Belgium urges residents to quit Liege’s flood-threatened riverfront

Authorities in the Belgian city of Liege on Thursday urged residents to evacuate neighbourhoods on the Meuse river as several days of heavy rains threatened historic flooding.

According to the Belgian media, at least six people died in the country as a result of the floods, including four in the eastern district of Verviers alone. Thousands of people may have to be relocated.

Flooding across Europe, most notably in Germany, has now claimed over 90 lives, with many still missing.
