(CNN)More than 160 people are dead and hundreds more remain missing after catastrophic flooding hit large swaths of western Europe, with tens of thousands unable to return to their homes and many still left without access to power and drinking water.

The flooding, caused by unprecedented rainfall, has hit parts of western Germany before shifting to neighboring Belgium and the Netherlands.

The rapidly rising water levels forced volunteers and the military to race against the clock on Saturday to prepare the city for the flooding.

"The enormous devastation caused by the floods is gradually being revealed and clean-up operations have begun, with the help of many volunteers," the center said in a statement.

The devastating floods came after parts of western Europe experienced historic levels of rainfall, with more than a month's worth of rain falling in 24 hours.
