The Czech Army on Sunday doubled the number of troops deployed to help deal with the effects of flooding in several parts of Bohemia. Some 340 soldiers are now assisting in cleanup operations and other work, such as the building of a humanitarian centre to accommodate evacuees and rescue workers, a spokesperson for the General Staff said. Hundreds more troops will be deployed when water levels recede further in the Ústí nad Labem region, which has been one of the areas hardest hit by flooding.
