Following the heavy rainfall and flooding which recently left many dead in western Germany, the severe weather has now returned to areas of Belgium and parts of London.
In the Belgian town of Dinant (Walloon region), countless cars were washed away, while the town of Namur in the province of the same name and other towns and villages were inundated. Landslides were reported in Walloon-Brabant, south of Brussels. As in Germany, the catastrophic weather in Belgium over a week ago resulted in deaths. No news is currently available as to whether companies in the pet supplies sector have been affected, but Tom & Co. in Namur has been offering assistance on social media to pet owners affected by the flooding.
Storms and torrential rainfall also created traffic chaos in London last Sunday. A number of roads, tube stations and a tunnel were closed due to flooding, as reported by the BBC among other media outlets. The Docklands Light Railway station in Stratford, east London, was submerged under floodwater. There have been no reports to date of pet sector companies impacted by the severe conditions.
