Czechia suffering from widespread drought

The Czech Republic is suffering from widespread drought. According to experts 90 percent of the country is affected and 20 per cent of the country is experiencing extreme drought. Soil moisture, river flows and groundwater supplies are all significantly lower than normal. The north-western and central parts of Bohemia are the worst affected, while Šumava in southern Bohemia and southern Moravia are the least affected. Meteorologists say this is directly linked to climate change, which will bring more temperature extremes, water shortages and heavy storms in the years to come.
