Rhine drops below crucial level, impacting river transport

Kaub (Germany) (AFP) – The Rhine river in Germany has fallen below a key waterline level used as a reference for judging its accessibility for shipping. The water dropped below the 40-centimetre (15.7-inch) reference level in Kaub, a noted bottleneck for shipping where the Rhine runs narrow and shallow. That level is considered necessary for much of the transport along the river.
