A preliminary event analysis for the June 2013 Flood in Saxony is available (in German) from the Saxon Flood Centre under http://www.umwelt.sachsen.de/umwelt/wasser/download/Kurzbericht_Juni_2013_130820.pdf
The most interesting findings are, that for some areas the flood was more intense than in 2002. However, total caused damage was around
one third one fourth (2 billion Euros) of the 2002 value ( 6 billion 8 billion Euros). This is not only a consequence of the event characteristics, but first and foremost of a tremendously improved flood risk management.
