Experts monitoring the red-sludge dam in western Hungary are preparing for another "significant movement" in the damaged wall which holds back millions of cubic meters of the toxic mud, the National Disaster-management Directorate (OKF) told MTI on Tuesday.

The OKF said in a statement after an emergency meeting that plans were afoot to reinforce the secondary defence system surrounding the damaged area.

Earlier the condition of the damaged reservoir wall belonging to the Ajka alumina plant had been declared safe.

Fully 374 residents have returned to Kolontar, the village hardest hit by the torrent of red sludge which burst out of the reservoir on October 4, whereas 191 have said they want to move to a different location.

Második napja takarítanak az egyre fáradtabb emberek Devecseren, amelynek alacsonyan fekvő utcáit hétfőn öntötte el az ajkai timföldgyár vörösiszapja. A munka egyelőre kilátástalan, nincs hová tenni a hatalmas mennyiségű iszapot és a használhatatlanná vált holmikat. A városban fosztogatásról beszélnek, rémhírek terjednek, és van, aki attól tart: néhány év múlva rákos betegség viszi el az embereket.
