Danube Floods Vác

Map: Danube Floods VácThis image shows the devastating European flooding in August. The image was captured by astronauts using a digital still camera onboard the International Space Station (ISS). The photographs show flooding around the Danube Bend area just north of Budapest near the city of Vác, Hungary. The flood peaked in Budapest the day after this photo was made, on August 19, at about 8.5 meters (28 feet), exceeding the previous 1965 flood record. This image shows the waters inundating farmland in the flood plain.
