maybe there are various conclusions that can be pulled out of the flood disaster, Union Faction Chief Brinkhaus now said. "Build differently, more flood protection, less seal." In some regions as in the narrow valleys of the Eifel or the Bergisches Land, however, this is difficult. There there are fewer possibilities for flooding surfaces than in the flat Westphalia. In addition, the Eifel is one of the most thinnest regions of West Germany. There is not everything segregated by far. "This is also true here: no fast conclusions," Brinkhaus said.
