Sigh. Guess we won't be happy until there's no food or life left in the water.

The only good thing here is that Hungary is part of the EU and will get a lot of help on this.

If you watch the video clips, tis red sludge initially came flowing out like a flood, pushing cars out of the way, demolishing houses, all of it toxic waste in water. Absolutely tragic disaster.

The Waterworks of Budapest takes samples 7/24 in every two hours to check the Danube's conditions, the wells at the riverbank, etc, also installed pH-metres which are being monitored. So at least the Danube is safe now, and we can take water from it safely. This really is a disaster, the people in Kolontár lost everything what they worked for. Their loss is really immensurable.
