Acting mayor: flood situation in Prague stabilised

The acting mayor of Prague, Tomáš Hudeček, says the flood situation in the city has stabilised. Speaking after a meeting of the capital’s crisis committee on Tuesday, Mr. Hudeček said streams flowing into the River Vltava had receded. Officials said water levels had culminated in Prague at around 6 AM. In some parts of the city cleanup operations and the calculation of damages have begun. However, much of its underground rail network remains closed and the metro may not reopen fully until the end of the week.
