The webcam seems to be running and these pics look same water level as the pics Ron just posted.
Looks like the web-cam cut out around noon on Monday. But - this is certainly an interesting site. You can go back for 3 days, and click on various times --> and SEE how quickly the water rose in the town.
I remember when we were there 4 years ago, our guide commented on past flooding. She said she remembered the last "big" flood - and how her Dad was involved with the rescue crews. They were taking people out by boat from upper windows!!!
She also thanked us for coming to see Passau. She indicated that tourism was a big part of the economy there. I would hope that the river boats put Passau back on the itinerary once it is safe to do so.... I would hate it if the people were hit with a decrease in tourist dollars, as well as trying to recoup from the flood.
