Yes. However, if a river's normal, average depth is 2m (like Elbe at Magdeburg), it is very differrent if the critical height in a flood is 6.5m or 7.5m. E.g. in Magdeburg all the dams are designed for a water level of 6.8m (which is almost 5 meters above the average level), and the current level is 7.4m, growing.

Looks like these floods are some of the worst ever in these places. I'm glad we're spared this time.

^ I remember when they had to replace the motorway. But I see they've also emptied Otzenrath.
