The Wetterapp Nina warns against floods in Essen, Duisburg, Bochum and Gelsenkirchen
THE WEST has asked the fire service for food, which is the message
Eat. If you have the app NINA, you were suddenly warned of floods. The message is valid for Essen, Duisburg, Bochum or Gelsenkirchen. If you have the app NINA, you were suddenly warned of floods. The message is valid for Essen, Duisburg , Bochum or Gelsenkirchen .
If you go to the message, the same message is displayed for all cities: “Thresholds are exceeded on 2 levels – location information is available”.
The WEST has asked the fire service Essen what it is with the messages. Spokesman Mike Filzen gives an all-clear: “This is only a transnational message for NRW.”
However, no direct water bodies are affected in Essen and the surrounding area, but in Sauerland and Niederrhein. And also the level is only increased.
Feltzen explains that the warning app NINA is more suitable for acute weather information and not for floods. “I always look at the water level Hattingen of the Ruhrverband Essen in the morning .” And the water level is still absolutely normal in the morning .
Even in the city of Essen, there are no worrying reports about increased water levels. “We are responsible for the tributaries and there are no disturbing water levels.”
