At least 40 people died from the extreme flooding that hit western Germany within the past day, local media reported on July 15.

Heavy flooding also impacted the Netherlands and Belgium, where at least five people were killed.

This footage filmed by Roger Green shows Germany’s Wupper river gushing.

“Normally the Wupper is just a slow and sedately flowing small river,” Green wrote in a caption. “After 30 hours of continuous heavy rain it has been transformed into a raging monster.” Credit: Roger Green via Storyful
