I hope that this disaster will not happen again.
But the cracking wall of the alumina plant reservoir could collapse at any moment.
And the whole wall may collapse.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban told reporters that a crack in the concrete wall widened by 2.76 inches (7 centimeters) overnight.
Officials have started to build dams to the north so that it won’t hit too many people.
Kolontar has been evacuated.
And they may evacuate the next town of Devecser.
Both were hit by the red toxic flood on Monday.
If the wall collapse, it will be a great tragedy for Hungary.
On Monday, a gigantic sludge reservoir burst its banks at an alumina plant in Ajka, Hungary caused a bad red sludge flood.
Ajka is a town 100 miles (160 kilometers) southwest of Budapest, the capital of Hungary.
By Tuesday, it was reported that about 35.3 million cubic feet of sludge had poured from the reservoir, flooding a 16 square mile area.
The red sludge is dangerous because the material is a waste product in aluminum production that contains heavy metals and is toxic if ingested.
At least four people were killed, six were missing and 120 injured, many with burns.
Hundreds were evacuated.
In Kolontar, the town closest to the plant, a 12-foot-high wave of red slurry hit, swept away everything in its path.
Houses were flooded, cars were swept off and bridges were damaged.
By Tuesday, it swept toward the Danube River.
It will be an ecological disaster if it reach the Danube River.
Emergency workers wearing masks and chemical protection gear rushed to pour 1,000 tons of plaster into the Marcal River to bind the sludge and keep it from flowing on to the Danube some 45 miles away.
I think we should stop making aluminium because this disaster can happen again and again.
There is a bad flood in China now.
701 people were killed by the flood and 347 are missing.
Three quarter of China’s provinces were hit by the flood.
25 rivers have reached record-high water level.
Heavy rain on the hillsides caused lots of landslides.
Lots and lots of houses and buildings were damaged.
The water level at the Three Gorges Dam is at record high.
It is now just 20m below the dam’s maximum capacity.
Three Gorges Dam is the biggest hydro power dam in the world.
The dam is on the Yangtze River.
Yangtze River is the longest river in China.
They should stop cutting down trees and stop polluting the rivers and the air.
All these make a flood worse.
