- Story Text: - INTRO: The floods which have brought chaos to east Germany are beginning to be brought under control.
German rescue workers on Saturday (July 26) claimed the situation in the area of the River Oder has stabilised.
Thousands of soldiers worked through night to shore up crumbling dykes along the river.
But emergency teams fighting the worst flooding for 50 years remained on full alert on Saturday.
They are concerned about sandbag dykes which have been built along the River Oder between Poland and Germany.
Officials have described the dykes as "like pudding" and fear they could burst at any time.
