Drought traps ships on Danube
Saturday 03 December 2011
The waters on the Danube are so low that 100 loaded ships are stuck near the Hungarian border, blocked by sand bars.
The drought is highly unusual for this time of year. For traffic to resume water levels would have to rise by at least 50cm, but no rain is forecast.
November was the driest in the Czech Republic since 1775 when records began.
