European flooding as presented by: Boston Big Picture

Over the past month, heavy rainfall from different storms across parts of Europe has caused massive amounts of flooding - some water moving slowly across river plains and farmland, some moving swiftly through cities and villages. Dozens have lost their lives, many thousands evacuated their homes, some repeatedly - Poland in particular is suffering its worst flooding in decades. More recently, parts of Spain and France have experienced flash floods that have carried away people and vehicles. Collected here are some images of the flooding in Europe from the past several weeks. Residents walk through a flooded street in Felsozsolca, Hungary. Cyclists ride through the flooded Danube River in Budapest, Hungary on June 7,2010. The Parliament building sits in the background. A man sits with his dog on a ledge on the upper floor of his home surrounded by flood water on the outskirts of the town of Sandomierz, south east Poland.
