Heavy rain showers also cause a lot of flooding in West Brabant

The bad weather is spreading over Belgium from Antwerp and Flemish Brabant and broke loose over Wallonia around 8 p.m.

Later in the evening, areas that were hit hard by flooding last week will also have to deal with new storms.

The governor of the province of Liège has convened an emergency meeting to prepare measures against new floods.

Emergency services, fire brigade and shelters are ready to provide assistance.

Plans for the evacuation of residents are also ready.

The Central and West Brabant security region has received several reports about flooded streets and flooded cellars, a spokesperson said.

"We ask you to avoid Kruisland, as a number of streets have become impassable due to extreme rainfall. The emergency services are on site to help with the flooding," BOA municipality of Steenbergen tweeted.

A lot of rain has also fallen in a number of places in the vicinity of North Brabant.

For example, video images show that the water in Oud-Vossemeer rises above the wheels of cars.

The Zeeland Safety Region says that 25 reports have been received, all from the municipality of Tholen.

The fire brigade helped pump out the water.
