julie, this is a significant visit by the chancellor towns. people are suffering if not morning. and here comes medical on what my very well be. her last crisis related visit as chancellor. how or residents reacting to medical visits and, and medicals words? well, some residents were skeptical, 1st and foremost because a lot of roads had to be shot when the chancellor arrived. and they thought that was hindering the arrival of volunteers and equipment to help the rescue efforts and the clean up efforts here. and also many were skeptical because they thought it was just a photo opportunity for the cameras during an election campaign. others were more happy to see or hear. they thought it was an important sign to give support and show solidarity for the people here. and what everyone has told me is that they want to be the support. and also last in the long term, is there anything the chancellor could have said to ease the pain of residence in
3:04 pm
that district? women i spoke to earlier today said that the amount of funds and money that has been promised until now doesn't seem like enough to her. and so maybe if the chancellor were to soon say what kind of money we were talking about here, people would maybe feel a little calmer and reassured that destruction is so big that it will take months. it's not yours to rebuild. and the cost is going to be enormous. a lot of people have their homes, not insured for such an event because they thought it would never happen. so they want to hear that help is on its way truly. every time we look and screens, there is yet another image of devastation on the streets there. and this tireless work that people are doing to try to dig themselves out of this. how are people doing there today, especially given the fact that there are still many unaccounted for people are
3:05 pm
obviously tired because they've been at it for a few days by now. they're also distraught. they, some people have lost everything. some people have lost their family members and friends, so it is tough, but there is hope. people are very grateful for all the help that has come here from volunteers from all over the area from different parts of germany. people have brought their own equipment, their own tractors to come and help. so despite the difficulties people here are really, really grateful for all the supports. truly south delhi in the german town of shore . thank you. i'm joined now by our political correspondent emmanuel shares. and we just heard from the chancellor would you make of her speech? while i was very moving enough, so we saw angela america walking through the street. so what used to be the tree?
3:06 pm
so she'll just before see address the population and she looked visibly moved. she was really shocked by what she was saying, and that is what really transpired from that speech. there's a lot of empathy, dad. there's also a lot of reassurance that people wouldn't be left alone. she promised that the government, the federal government would give financial support to the people affected. also, she talked to several times during her visit to talk to rescue or to talk to people affect you. so she was very much where she is expected to be assa jim and just being aware of the kweisi happen and you know, it's 4 days after the floods happen. usually younger america would react much quicker. but you know, there's 2 months left before the next elections and the focus has very much shifted from her reactions to that of the candidate to succession. of course,
3:07 pm
we should mention the transfer was prior to this visiting the united states on her last visit. there you mention economic support, the economic impact will be significant. was the government specific enough in terms of what they're pledging regarding that support. you know, the damage will probably be counted in the billions if it's too early to assess it right now. but based on flows that happened in the previous year in germany, these will be counted into billions, finest minutes. the last charles already promised an initial package of 300000000 euros to have those effected. but this is going to be a disaster and economy disaster for the people affected in the region. you know, shops, for example, they have been close for over a year because of the make and, you know, and they, i just thought to reopen and know that natural disaster he's coming to affect them
3:08 pm
