(CNN)A week after severe flooding hit western Europe, devastating Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, German officials said Thursday they fear the 158 people still missing there may not be found.

''There are still 155 people unaccounted for," police spokeswoman Verena Scheurer told CNN Thursday, adding that "therefore, we presume at this stage that the number of deaths could still rise. "

German weather service spokesman Andreas Friedrich, who told CNN a week ago that Germany had "not seen this much rainfall in 100 years" in parts of western Germany, warned that more rain is forecast in some of the flood-ridden areas this weekend.

However, under no circumstances should we see flash floods we have seen and experienced a week ago," Friedrich told CNN on Thursday.
