AND THE WATERS PREVAILED. Daniel at European Tribune files an Earth Day report from Budapest with an update on the Danube flooding, which is now affecting Yugoslavia, Rumania, and Ukraine. There was a lot of snowmelt this spring. The Hirschenkogel web camera shows snow above Semmering; that, however, might have been from the Schneekanonen as the ski runs closed after Easter Monday. In the antipodes, a potentially nasty hurricane (typhoon? williwaw?) has turned aside, sparing Darwin a direct hit. (No news of flooded streetcars or school buses left below the levees.)
