Preparing for the flood

Flooding could be much worse in parts of Switzerland than it was during the extreme weather of 1999 and 2005. The results of a new study show that if lakes and rivers in the region flood again, up to 80,000 people could be affected, and entire valleys cut off. In this worst-case scenario, large areas of the countryside and residential areas could be under water for weeks. There is currently up to two metres of snow in the Alps and experts say that if May is warm and wet, the snowmelt combined with rain could lead to an extreme flooding event.
