    Flooding continues to devastate parts of central Europe with officials predicting the cost of damage could eclipse the 11 billion euros caused in 2002.

    With more rain expected, it could be a while before the cost can be fully counted.

    In Deggendorf, Germany, the overflowing Danube has left most of the town without electricity and cause schools to close.
