I spent 30 minutes in Kolontar before my mouth became dry and the stench of the red sludge became so unbearable that I had to put on a mask. The village is a few hundred metres from the source of the spill and it was here that the sludge hit first. Some houses were almost washed away. Excavators and other vehicles were circling around the buildings and the drivers were wearing their own white masks because of the smell. It was the same story in Devecser, where I arrived seven hours after the disaster struck. Even in the darkness of the early evening, the deep-red colour dominated everything. Devecser is a small town with little more than 5,000 inhabitants, and it is far from any big city. Damaged cars, tree branches, torn gates and broken wooden fences lay everywhere. It looked like the aftermath of a devastating storm – except that everything was covered with a thick layer of red sludge.
