Water levels are continuing to retreat from danger levels across the Czech Republic on Sunday. The highest, level three, flood warnings were in force at eight points on Sunday afternoon compared with 14 the day before. The most threatened areas remain in the western Plzeň region and along stretches of the Elbe including at Mělnik, Ústí nad Labem and Děčíň. The situation at an overflowing reservoir around 20 kilometres west of Plzeň started to ease on Saturday night with water levels receding. There had been fears that more water would have to be released from the dam creating a serious surge downstream.
