Magdeburg is enduring its highest floodwaters in its 1,200 year history and several city districts are underwater. Catastrophic flooding has hit portions of southern and eastern Germany that has left at least seven people dead and forced tens of thousands to flee their homes. Towns in northern Germany downstream from the Elbe are also bracing for floods in coming days. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
