In October 2018, the negative records were broken: the water level decreased under the lowest level ever recorded at several points of the Danube. In the Budapest section, the lowest water level ever recorded was 51 cm, registered on November 6, 1947. After the flood of 2013, which once again broke results, 2018 water level managed to fell short of the water level of 1947.
The negative record of the Danube on October 25, 2018, was 38 cm.Luckily, owing to the rainy weather of the past days, the water level of the Danube started to rise. We have made an illustration displaying this and the flood 5 years ago about the highest and lowest water levels in Budapest ever recorded.
