An estimated 102 persons have lost their lives in Germany and Belgium as a result of flooding.
About 80 people died in Germany alone while 12 people died in Belgium.
Hundreds of people remain unaccounted for, according to local media reports.
The flood is considered the worst for Germany in decades.
