Flood Hits Eastern Germany

Brandenburg state Governor Matthias Platzeck (R) and state Interieur Minister Rainer Speer (2ndR) drive in a boat during a sighting of the river Oder on May 27, 2010 in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany. German authorities have raised their flood alert status for towns along the Oder river in the state of Brandenburg as large volumes of water continue to arrive downstream from Poland. Poland has been hit hard by recent floods that have left at least 15 people dead.
