10:02 pm
leaving the town in ruins. as is a 2nd, it's shocking. the german language hardly has words to describe the devastation that has been wrong. but it is incredibly reassuring to see how people come together and help each other out. the solidarity they have, it does, but some residence angry that the clean up effort was delayed when parts of shields were cordoned off for the chancellor's visits. and we need hope, what good is merkel if she comes here and looks a few warm words and that's it. with their homes and businesses devastated other residents and worried the help they getting now weren't lost. they say they need long term assistance to rebuild within right now we are overwhelmed with help, but it's not just about now. it's also about later and help to rebuild. that's
10:03 pm
what's needed, not just help for the next 2 or 3 weeks. once the garbage is gone, everything's fine again. that's not how it works on their households that are not sufficiently ensured. and merkle has to see that while they wait for the promised financial hope for now, these families are relying on each other for comfort and reassurance. well, the famous norbert nor a burg ring race track has been turned into a disaster relief center dw correspondent kate martyr. has been down there today. hi kate. tell us what's happening where you are. so it is not just one, but 2 relief efforts happening here today. there's one which is the official relief effort and that contains both the military. so the one does that, as well as the fires of is the red cross and the technicians held back to another german voluntary lead relief organization. and then as you see behind me here,
10:04 pm
this is another relief organization happening in the same area which is being run just by volunteers. and it's quite an amazing operation which is just being put on by volunteers. here. they've come from all over the region to help and so have the donations been piling and, and this has been huge. organizations are around today. there are many people helping at this area behind me was food from volunteers helping they were folding the clothes. they were source in the clothes and not just clothes, but also food and prams and everything for young people to old people. and then they were sending them out to the villages in the region that need in need of assistance for items such as such is that the ones here and i asked some of the people, some of the volunteers why they came and a group told me they came because they couldn't just sit in the garden when they and enjoy the sun when they'd seen this huge tragedy on forward right on the doorstep. well, we've also seen the german army joining in pulling out cars from
10:05 pm
a flooded motorway. tell us more about the military's ro sir, this here as well, as i said, is a hate to you for the german military in the region to coordinate that relief effort. and they've been sending out special tank or swim recovery tank to try and recover some of these vehicles that was stuck in this merger weight. which was also hit hard by this mudslide and also from the flood waters. and today that has been seen, lots of large vehicles come in from the military. they've been driving back to you . we've seen a tank as being cranes. and everyone who's been volunteering here has been founded to see these vehicles running in because he, they're already seen in a military context. right. well, many people in the flood zone have called the government's response slow and not
10:06 pm
a question. how are the officials that responding to that that's a question. a i picked to an official from their fire brigade today, and the word he used was chaos. he said it's such a challenge to be able to coordinate all the different relief efforts from all the different really organizations. another official said that it was again, a logistical challenge because they're trying to coordinate with the bond is that the, the red cross and the volunteers. and just to try and pull all the various relief organizations in together at the same time, at such short notice because this was such a surprise, tragedy has really been a challenge here. alright, we'll leave it there. dw correspondent, kate martyr in the flood zone. thanks for your update. well, as we've heard, the german army has been involved in the rescue effort and keno populations. but in many areas, civilian volunteers are in the forefront of providing underground assistance, son,
10:07 pm
sausages, and fear. it looks like a village fate, but it's not what it seems. this is just a bright time for the volunteers organizing an arduous relief effort. now that the flood water has subsided solely darcy is the one thing on everyone's minds. hit right now in getting people who are being affected by the floods back on their feet as quickly as possible. people have traveled from name by villages and further to get here to lend a helping hand with a clear up over the weekend around 200 color and football fan, descended on the region and have been distributed around the affected areas. they've been helping locals by rolling up their sleeves to clear deborah, from homes restaurants and the ruined b hall. cologne, found marco helped organize the effort. and i love. you can't leave people on their own. you just to help. if it does happen to me that i'd want someone to help. so i think it's great that people are lending a hand,
10:08 pm
goes around the generous responses stunned locals, including this high address a. she's had a business here for 12 years, but i think there were so many people out there that you don't even know. i don't even know where they come from, around here helping to clear up so much were willing to help. it's wonderful. comp felt short about children despite all the volunteers, many people have been left wondering why there hasn't been more help from the authorities. yup. and all those at the top are trying to bring order to the chaos, but it's not really working. a lot of help is coming from volunteers and residents showing an open loss of initiative. but you can't really say that people at the top of helping really get on all become with so many areas overwhelmed by the floods rescue services, say they're at breaking point. this is relative freely. i don't lloyd,
10:09 pm
it's pretty difficult to get help to everyone. and we have to prioritize if we get a report that someone still trapped in a building and people with watering the basement, they end up being pushed to the back of the queue on as much work to be done. but many volunteers say they'll stick around long after this weekend was a chef on fire game. our boss is given as monday and tuesday, so we can use the time to finish the job code on the support the local from a 100 on mentioned with many residents still wondering how this disaster could have happened. that help will be much appreciated. let's take a look at some other stories making headlines around the world. hopes are fading for our writing for a breakthrough in peace talks on i've got on the afghan government on the taliban terror group say they want to reach a settlement. the al jazeera network is reporting progress in the negotiations in

10:20 pm
athletes, plans upside down the middle and looking back. it was a challenging and negative time also had just been for weeks training outdoors and the far as i have been a lot of things preventing me from training properly on it. so i'm happy that things are gradually looking office. it's may 23rd with 2 months ago until the olympics should begin. time is running out some of the last few flies to build up the right form and crucially clear the requisite heights to qualify for tokyo. 5 years ago in rio's he cleared one meter 93, finishing in 7th place. how can i do the olympics in the back of my mind and i'm focusing on the competitions
10:21 pm
between then and now we see those from the determined championships are 2 weeks away and i also have a number of other me 80 jump one meter 92, which is the qualifying height, and then we'll be almost completely focused on the whole. and my last young flies seems to be in good form, meet in may. but then at the all important olympics qualifying height of one meter 92, she fails. not once, but on all 3 attempts. it's a huge setback. see, and her coast time kiss, analyze i mistakes while the competition is still going. persistent problems with her achilles tendon have full set to also her run up. now many laws has to convert her higher approach speed into height. ah, the small, the crucial factors that will decide whether that stays up.
