The Czech weather office warned Tuesday of the possibility of severe storms across the country with the likelihood of hail and rainfall in some places of up to 50 millimetres. Wind speeds could increase to as high as 75 kilometres an hour and flash floods could occur, the office added. Rail links in the Liberec region were already cut on Tuesday. Storms on Monday night felled trees and disrupted transport with even the Prague tram system cut at one point because of flooding.
