Flood alert remains in place on Radbuza River, Plzeň region

An extreme flood alert remains in effect for the Plzeň region although levels on the Radbuza River declined somewhat on Saturday evening. Specialists expect levels may again rise on Sunday with temperatures above zero leading to more melting snow.

Meanwhile, the danger of some 50 homes being flooded on the Berounka River on Saturday has passed. Large ice floes that had blocked sections broke away early in the evening, with rising water falling back to normal levels at around midnight, experts said.
