Today’s water calamities serve as warnings of future problems, Hungary’s president said at the opening of a Budapest conference of the European Water Association (EWA). János Áder said that 80% of the effects of climate change are disasters connected with water.

Due to the acceleration of the water cycle, there are now some places where instead of cloud there are “climate flows” which result in sudden flooding and rising seas.
