Rumble Thick clouds of smog filled the skies above the Hungarian capital of Budapest on January 24.

Smog also covered other Hungarian cities, including Miskolc, Pecs and Salgotarjan, and the fog was so heavy that the National Centre for Public Health issued an alert for 17 localities, <a href="http://hungarytoday.hu/news/pollution-air-smog-alert-budapest-27574" target="_blank">Hungary Today</a> reported.
