Europe Braces for More Flooding

Workers prepare sandbags on the pavement in front of a hotel on Margaret Island on the River Danube in Budapest, Hungary, Wednesday, as flood prevention efforts continue. The river level is expected to peak next Monday. Heavy rainfall and swollen rivers have already caused flooding in parts of Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic. In Germany, desperate families have been plucked from rooftops by helicopters, cars have been swept away by raging torrents and levees failed without warning Wednesday as central Europe was inundated.
