Flood damage expected to reach tens of millions of crowns

Insurance companies say the damage caused by Thursday’s flash floods is likely to reach tens of millions of crowns.

Insurers say hundreds of insurance claims were made in the course of Friday and more are expected in the coming days, since many people and institutions were engaged in emergency clean-up work and are only now taking stock of the damage.

Flash floods hit dozen of towns and villages in the central, southern and western parts of Bohemia.
