Germany – Germany has been inundated by heavy rain and thunderstorms. Some parts of the capital, Berlin, have been left under water. Traffic slowed to a halt in some parts of the city due to the torrential downpour. The storms are expected to continue over the weekend, particularly in the east of the country. Germany has endured more than its fair share of bad weather recently. A storm in the north of the country claimed the lives of two people last week.

Mexico – The rainy season has hit Mexico City where a deluge caused havoc yesterday. Heavy rains lashed the city beginning in the late afternoon, causing flash flooding that stranded motorists in their submerged vehicles, forced the closure of key transportation infrastructure and flooded people’s homes. Up to 70 millimeters of rain fell on some parts of the city.
