Statement on the floods in Western Europe

Updated: May 11

With more than 180 victims and hundreds injured as a result of heavy torrential rain and floods, JEF Malta would like to extend its deepest sympathies to our fellow European citizens in the affected countries.

It is a relief to see that the floods have begun receding, and we want to commend the health and emergency services who have been working tirelessly to help those in need.

We would also like to recognise the help offered by other European states to provide flood rescue teams, and the EU’s Copernicus’ role in emergency satellite mapping. We welcome such acts of European solidarity, and hope to see more states follow suit to help the affected regions in the aftermath of this tragedy.
