August precipitation two times the average

The Czech Hydro-Meteorological Institute reports that August saw twice the average precipitation in the Czech Republic, at 150 litres per square metre. Northern Bohemia received three times the average rainfall, with 230 litres, roughly a quarter of the annual precipitation for the region. The least amount of rain was in north Moravia, which still got 150% of the average. The heavy rains brought flooding in parts of the country in August, particularly in the regions of Liberec and Ústí nad Labem, where damages have been estimated at six billion crowns.
