Instagrammers Document Flooding throughout Europe

Countries throughout Western and Central Europe, particularly Germany, Hungary and the Czech Republic, have experienced historic flooding over the last couple weeks, breeching levees and displacing tens of thousands along the Danube and Elbe rivers.

The flooding, the worst to hit Europe since 2002, has also claimed more than a dozen lives.

People throughout the region—both those impacted and those volunteering with relief efforts—have been sharing their experience through Instagram. View more photos by searching the hashtags #flood, #Flut (German) and #povodeň (Czech).
