      Rebuilding Germany's flooded areas will cost billions, Seehofer says

      The cost of rebuilding the flooded communities in western Germany will run into the billions of euros, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said on Monday, as the country's death toll topped more than 160 and the search for some still missing went on, dpa reported. The flooding of the Ahr tributary devastated communities in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, where the number of people confirmed to have died has notched up to 117. In neighbouring North Rhine Westphalia, the number of dead stood at 47.
