Five places in east Bohemia still on flood alert but water levels receding

Flood alerts were still in place in five spots on the Elbe River in the Hradec Králové and Pardubice regions on Wednesday morning. However, all five were at the lowest of the three alert levels and the water levels were gradually receding.

Rivers and streams in eastern Bohemia reached flood levels due to heavy rains overnight between Sunday and Monday, even reaching the highest of the three levels in several places.
