Rising Water Causes Rhine River Closure
Rising waters and extensive flooding has caused the Rhine river in Germany to close off all shipping activity until further notice, according to the German Inland Navigation Authority.
The Authority has reported the river has been closed between the German cities of Duisburg and Koblenz, which will prevent sailings to and from Switzerland.
A spokesman for the water police told news website The Local: "As soon as the water level climbs over 8.3 metres, that happens.”
Persistent rainfall and melting snow have led to a gradual rise in river levels in western Germany in recent days. https://www.porttechnolog...
