The police on Monday confirmed an 11th flood victim. A 50-year-old man fell into the river Otava near a campsite in the town of Sušice in southwest Bohemia on Sunday night. Rescue services found his body in the morning eight kilometers downstream near the town Rabí na Klatovksu. Four people are still missing as a result of last week’s flooding, mostly as a result of boating accidents. On Monday, the Central Crisis Committee introduced a ban on boating on any body of water where high flood alerts have been issued, under threat of up to a 20,000-crown fine.
