STRENGBERG, AUSTRIA - SEPTEMBER 24, 2009: Demolition of a farmhouse in the flatlands near Strengberg. Many people in this are were resettled after the big flood in 2002. Ten victims from the Czech Republic and five from Austria died after rivers rose to dangerous levels in both countries last week. The demand for more and higher dams is always loud after major flood events. Affected residents are demanding more protection from the floods, their homes, operating systems and fields should be better protected in the future. The desire for a better protection is understandable and legitimate, especially when placed in extreme events such as floods in the years 2002 and 2013, entire towns under water and livelihoods are destroyed. A dam in front of the house, in front of their own village provides security for those affected. (Photo by Wolfgang Simlinger/ASAblanca via Getty Images)
