The German chancellor says she has been shocked by the surreal flood devastation after visiting the deluge-hit areas. Angela Merkel further said the federal government and the state will work together to bring things to how they were. She added that they have to be faster in the fight against climate change. Merkel also promised swift financial aid to the flood-hit regions. Days of extreme rainfall in Germany and Belgium have so far claimed the lives of 188 people. Rescue workers are still searching for survivors in parts of northwestern Europe. The death toll could rise as many people are still missing.
