In Wächtersbach itself, numerous streets were flooded with mud and rubble and several cellars were full, as the volunteer fire brigade Wächtersbach announced. The fire brigades from Wächtersbach were supported in their operations by forces from the fire brigades from Bad Orb and Steinau. The fire brigade pumped out the water in the cellars and rooms with waste water pumps and water suction devices and used sandbags to protect against the water running in. A mobile flood protection system was also installed at one point.
