At the bottom, you see, we are not Homo-sapiens at all. Our core is madness. The prime directive is murder. What Darwin was too polite to say, my friends, is that we came to rule the earth not because we were the smartest, or even the meanest, but because we have always been the craziest, most murderous mother....ers in the jungle. -Stephen King

Index.hu has some good photos of the area affected. In a nutshell, the reservoir broke. The reservoir looks like communist era concrete. What is amazing is there does not appear to be any steel frame in the concrete. It looks like they just poured it into the ground. Supposedly, the Government has inspected it a couple of weeks ago. (Over a bottle of Palinka by the looks of it).

Curious who is going to pick up the bill for all this? Country is, financially, on it's knees as it is

Seeing that there is the possibility of it going into the Danube, I'm sure the EU is going to pitch in.

You are correct. In one of the reports I read, the EU does have a clean up fund for disasters like this.

This is right where my family lives. A friend of my father's who lives here is from Devecser. I hope his family is ok.

The red circled villages are the ones flooded, the greed circled village is where my family lives. And where my family is from.



That's where my father and his family were born.

I was just thinking, if it would have gone there...it would have destroyed my family's graves too.
