Villages in Hungary have been evacuated as Central Europe’s worst floods in over a decade hit the country. Emergency services and volunteers are working to prevent the devastation and the Prime Minister has declared a state of emergency. Along more than 700km of the river, thousands of people, including many volunteers and even convicts from prisons, are reinforcing the banks of the river with sandbag barriers. Residents have been using boats as transport, trying to rescue what they can.

In Budapest, some of the city’s subway stations have closed. Forecasters predict that water level will rise to as high as 8.86 metres, which is higher than the Danube’s previous record set in 2006. River levels were expected to be at their highest early on Monday. Budapest Mayor Istvan Tarlos said that in a worst-case scenario up to 55,000 people may need to be evacuated.
