MTI 2010-05-17 09:29 -
The outgoing Prime Minister declared a state of emergency in flood-hit areas in northeast Hungary on Monday. The PM said the declaration was necessary to help flood defence forces in some 60 towns and villages get access to immediate assistance from national sources. Heavy rain and storms have caused serious damage and thousands of residents have been displaced in several parts
of Hungary.

So far around 2,100 inhabitants have been forced to leave their houses. Most of the displacement centres are in the north-east, where 1,900 have been evacuated, some in rubber boats, National Disaster Authority spokesman Gyorgy Szentes told MTI.
Damage to the country's roads now total several hundred million forints, road management company Magyar Kozut told MTI in a statement. Seventy percent of Hungary's roads have been flooded or washed out, the document added. The M1 motorway has been fully closed near Gyor as a result of flooding and will remain closed for several days. The motorway is a major route connecting Budapest and
the main border crossing with Austria at Hegyeshalom.
