Water is now receding, allowing rescuers to access thousands of affected homes.
It will be some time before Liege residents come to terms with what has happened but what is lifting spirits is the fact that so many people have come to help.
Belgium’s prime minister visited the town of Rochefort. He has called the floods unprecedented, but a scientist says climate change is to blame.
Emergency workers continue to move people from areas and homes considered unsafe.
