Budapest helps people deal with heat wave
by UPI

BUDAPEST, Hungary -- Hungarian authorities delivered thousands of gallons of water to citizens of Budapest to help them cope with temperatures topping 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Budapest city council Tuesday sent out about 90 municipal workers and volunteers to distribute 22,000 bottles and 15,000 plastic bags with drinking water across the capital, the Hungarian news agency MTI said.

The city council sent water trucks to cool streets and sidewalks and it opened about 2,000 fountains in parks.

The Budapest city transport company kept delivering water to passengers at major bus and streetcar stops.

Budapest authorities urged senior citizens to seek shelter in hospitals and public centers, MTI said.
