The graveyard is flooded!

I just received a photo from a friend. He worked as a gravedigger. He told me that his workplace is currently flooded. "Poor, they used to feel the flood when they were alive. When they died they were hit by the flood." He said it was not unusual for a body or bone in a grave to come out. I think this is terrible. Has anything like this happened at your place?

I haven't read about it, but it is possible that it has happened in Germany, too. There was a lot of flooding some time ago in a part of the country. One small town was nearly completely destroyed.

Thank you for sharing the information. Is public awareness in Germany good in disposing of waste in its place? If it's still lacking here.

@Faster16 Oh yes, it is. Germany is a clean country. If you leave your waste somewhere, say, in the woods and are found out, you have to pay a fine. All households have to have a garbage can and they pay for the service that they're emptied regularly every two weeks.

@MALUSE Paying fine? That's a great policy. If so, how much fine would you have to pay? What is the monitoring method so that you know if someone is littering?

We do get some flooding in England but not in the area I live. Some people have had to evacuate their homes and lost all their possessions in some years; a few lost their lives. Not this year fortunately as we haven't had so much rain.

Looks like this year is better at your place. In my place it often rains heavily and causes flooding.

Here most bodies are in a casket that is then put in a vault buried in the ground. So flooding would not cause that kind of problem.

that's a good solution, the majority belief here is not using a casket
