Gov't transfers HUF 500 million for flood protection

The government has transferred HUF 500 million from central budget reserves to the Environment Ministry for flood protection measures, Environment Minister Imre Szabó said on Thursday.

The transfer will bring total spending on flood protection to almost HUF 700 million, Szabó said.

Some 853 kilometers along waterways in Hungary are under flood alert, which is likely to remain in place next week as well, he said. (MTI-ECONEWS)
