Schönau a. Königssee – The mud in this kitchen is so high that the Bundeswehr has to tackle it!
Days after the flood disaster, the storms also reached the idyllic community of Schönau am Königssee (Bavaria). Among those affected is Francesco Calabro (43), the chef of an Italian restaurant.
►His house is on a slope that was softened and slipped by the tide. The mud avalanche poured out onto his garden, then crushed the windows in the house. “It’s a disaster! The mud in the living room is 1.50 meters high, the house is uninhabitable. “
“I haven’t even moved in properly yet”
And because the mud has already dried so hard, even soldiers from the mountain troops from Berchtesgaden moved in. The dirt is now shoveled out with an excavator, but that can still take a while. Francesco Calabro to BILD: “I only bought the house 18 months ago, I haven’t even moved in properly yet.”
And further: “I am still grateful that I get so much help. The soldiers are good people. “
