A weekend of monsoon-style rainstorms has left many parts of Copenhagen underwater, with violent storms set to continue this week. Many motorways became impassable after a day of muggy temperatures ended in a huge downpour on Saturday evening; over 150mm fell in just three hours, more rain that Copenhagen usually gets in two months.
"There is just one word to describe it, and that is 'chaos'" said DR reporter Preben Lund from Hellerup Station on Saturday. He added that commuters had been running across waterlogged train tracks to avoid the exit tunnels which were filled with sewage and rain water.
The following morning, Copenhagen was awash with mud and soaked furniture, with many homeowners and shopkeepers still desperately pumping water out of their basements. Klaus Palskov, of sewage company ABC Kloak og Ejendomsservice, told Politiken that he spent the weekend bailing out local businesses. "There are thousands of dead rats" he added.
Following the catastrophic floods in Copenhagen our team were contact to supply dehumidification in Copenhagen. As this was an emergency call we managed to despatch 3 x 40ft articulated lorries of dehumidifiers overnight which arrived two days later and were distributed to the premises most at need.
