5 Jun 10 - Poland, Hungary and Slovakia have launched major operations to move thousands of people from houses threatened by rising water.

In Hungary, floods closed 60 roads and left 18 towns cut off from the rest of the country, while in neighbouring Slovakia dozens of towns and villages were inundated.

In Croatia, more than 90 per cent of farmland in eastern regions was under water and a state of emergency was declared.

In Austria, floods disrupted many rail services and cut a border-crossing with Germany, and the river Inn burst its banks and flooded part of the northern town of Schaerding.

          "Yet another example of more farmland being damaged by excess
            rain, along with lots of devastation to infra-structure, and a huge
            price tag to repair damage when the economy is already weakened,"
            says Eunice.
