BUDAPEST — Continued heavy rains in the Central European region have pushed the Danube river to critical flood stage causing Budapest city officials to close several major roads which run along side the river as it passes through the center of the city. Meteorology experts and city officials expect the river to peak above seven meters Sunday night with the river receding to near normal levels by Wednesday. However, rain continues to dominate the 3-day weather forecast which could lead to the river peaking higher than expected. River traffic appeared to be suspended Sunday afternoon with dozens of river cruse ships and sightseeing boats blocked from passing underneath Budapest’s seven bridges. “We hope to be underway by tomorrow night” stated one crew member of a tourist river cruse boat, “but we don’t know what will happen.” Several restaurant boats have been cut off from shore due to the high water levels and causing them to close temporarily until water levels drop. Regional news agencies report up to a dozen deaths in neighboring countries as flash floods have swept through the Danube river basin. In 2006 the Danube flooded to 8.58 meters above normal which was 10 centimeters higher than the previous record set in 2002.
