7 Jun 10 - Warsaw braced Monday for a new flood crest on the mighty Vistula river, while Slovakia reeled from its worst flood in centuries.

Heavy rains have pounded central and eastern Europe, causing weeks of flooding.

Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated in southern regions of Poland as weather officials forecast more storms in the coming week.

Three weeks of flooding have also caused severe destruction in Hungary.

More than 220,000 hectares of land -- one-20th of Hungary's arable land -- is under water with about 50,000 hectares of farmland destroyed, causing an estimated 300 million euros damage to the farm sector.
