Floods continue to wreak havoc across northern and central Europe.
The irony is that while the weather is clear, run-off means that river levels are continuing to rise.
In Germany, the army has been drafted in to help.
The last great flood was in 2002 – they are now saying that, along the Elbe, this one will be even worse.
The same is happening along the Danube.
On the Austro-Slovak border, hundreds of firefighters work to save what they can after the river burst its banks.
Budapest is also bracing itself for record flooding from the swollen Danube.
The authorities expect high water levels to peak next Monday at around 8.75 metres. Flood preparations are underway at 20 locations across the city.
There is particular concern, though, over a small zoo on Margaret Island – a popular tourist attraction in the city.
300,000 sandbags have been used to build a nine metre high dam.
An operation is underway to evacuate the animals from their enclosures.
