Major technological catastrophe in Hungary

Late Monday at a factory for the production of alumina Ajkai Timfoldgyar Zrt near the Hungarian town of Haik, an explosion occurred, did not survive the dam, protected the neighborhood from the thousands of tons of chemical waste - red mud. As a result, 700,000 cubic meters of poisoned water gushed out with great speed down the hill. On its path were three settlements: hundreds of homes, thousands of residents. Toxic substances have already reached the local reservoirs. Now one of the major threats - the possibility of getting poisoned water in major rivers including the Danube. In this scenario, an environmental catastrophe can grow to an international scale.
