A pet dog walks in toxic mud on Oct. 5, 2010 in the village of Devecser, Hungary. A mixture of water and mining waste containing heavy metals flooded seven villages around the town of Ajka, killing four people and injuring 120. Six people remain missing in Hungary's worst-ever chemical accident.
Sunflowers stand in poisonous red mud in a field in Somlovasarhely, Hungary, October 6, 2010, after a dike of a reservoir containing red mud from an alumina factory in nearby Ajka broke two days ago, and over one million cubic meters of the poisonous chemical sludge inundated three villages, killing four persons and injuring over hundred. Three people are unaccounted for and hundreds of families have been evacuated.

After days of flooding due to torrential rains rivers and streams are slowly withdrawing in the region where 3,730 people have been forced to escape their homes due to floods and inland waters.
