Drone captures images of the Arve River flood in Geneva

GENEVA, Switzerland – The sun might be shining, water levels rescinding and bridges might have reopened, but some Geneva residents are still hung up on this week’s big topic: the Arve River flooding. After all, it was the highest surge on record for the area in more than 80 years.

Now a new video shot by a Geneva-based communications agency is making the rounds on social media. Thanks to a camera mounted on a drone, GlobalVision 360°‘s was able to capture the Arve at its fastest, from high above.

Geneva residents also captured the intense moments lived this past weekend from the ground.
