In the area of the city of Karlsruhe, as a result of an accident, a young man drowned, the circumstances of his death were not specified.
The police also added that due to a severe thunderstorm, visitors to the Taubertal music festival were evacuated. About 400 spectators were accommodated in the hangar, which was allocated by the authorities of the Bavarian city of Rothenburg as a refuge.
Also, due to a severe thunderstorm in the city of Baden-Württemberg, the start of the DFB Cup match between football clubs Sandhausen and Borussia Mönchengladbach was postponed. And at the Hardtwald stadium, the floodlights were out of order due to heavy rain. Due to the bad weather, spectators from the lower rows were asked to move to a safe place.
Last year, damage from lightning strikes in Germany was the highest in 15 years.
Berlin • 280 million euros - this amount was paid by German insurance companies to victims in 2018 as compensation for material damage from lightning strikes. As noted in the message of the German Union of Insurers (GDV), compensation was the highest in the last fifteen years, exceeding the previous year's figure by 40 million euros. At the same time, the insured events themselves were registered by 10 thousand less - about 290 thousand. The latter indicator has been declining recently due to improved weather protection of buildings.
