Flood Watch Budapest: Class 1 Storm warning issued

The Hungarian Weather Service, OMS, has issued a yellow Class 1 weather warning for Budapest and the northern parts of the Danube. This means that 25-30mm of precipitation can amount in a short amount of time – something which will not help the already rising water level of the Danube.

It might be necessary to evacuate residential areas near the Római Part
riverside promenade in Obuda, District III, Mayor of Budapest István
Tarlós announced on Tuesday afternoon.

With Danube water levels rising and expected to peak at a 50-year record
over the weekend, it should become clear by Thursday whether evacuations
will be needed.
