Flood forecasting by empirical means ;-)



The shots were taken on Dresden’s Prießnitzstraße, located along the final mile of the Prießnitz Creek, a small tributary to the Elbe River. The area was flooded in 2002 by backwater effects. Although the flooding was not caused directly by the Elbe flood, the high water mark is related to the highest observed water level at Elbe gauge Dresden-Altstadt. And of course, be prepared for what is to come!
