This article is intended to demonstrate the risks of disasters of hydrological origin in Hungary and – through the presentation of a number of extreme weather event – in other countries in the light of the extreme volume and intensity of rainfall during the period from September 2017 to April 2018. The purpose of the paper is to highlight that objective substantiation of the correlation between the changes in the patterns of precipitation and the increased risk of occurrence of disasters of hydrological origin can only be achieved by long term empirical research and recoding the data and damage events.
