Water levels on the Vltava and Labe rivers, which became swollen last week after heavy rainfall, are continuing to fall. However, with storms and persistent rain due until Tuesday, the risk of flooding remains in some parts of Bohemia. Local authorities have been ordered to keep flood defences in place and there have been warnings that some places already inundated could be affected again, with the saturated terrain making flash floods a possibility.
At the same time, thousands of people evacuated last week have been returning home. Ten deaths were recorded in connection with last week’s floods and material damages have been put at billions of crowns.
