As Hungary commemorates the sordid anniversary the Treaty of Versailles, which confiscated two-thirds of the country, more than 3700 have been forced to leave their homes by Sunday, due to record flooding affecting eight counties designated as crisis zones (Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén, Győr-Moson-Sopron, Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok, Nógrád, Bács-Kiskun, Békés, Csongrád and Fejér).
According to Government Spokesperson Anna Nagy (pictured), the flood has halted in the last 24 hours, and has begun recession in several regions. 1300 of the total number of displaced citizens were located in Northeastern Felsozolca, whose whereabouts can be inquired at toll-flee Governmental phone numbers.
Interior Minister Sandor Pinter said he has dispatched 400 police offers to the towns Felsodobsz and Nagykinizs, whose inhabitants are also facing the threat of displacement. The Defense Ministry has also announced it has allocated more than 3000 soldiers, 500 vehicles, helicopters and military boats to combat flooding. The Hungarian capital has also declared emergency, and has closed more than 40 of its flood gates.
