Institute says heavy rainfall will renew flood threat

The Czech Hydro-meteorological Institute has warned that Monday to Wednesday will see heavy rainfall across the country, especially areas in the Czech-Moravian highlands. The increased rainfall could raise water levels dangerously on some rivers. High-level flood alerts are expected on the Nežárka, Malše, Sázava and Lužnice rivers. The Labe could see a mid-level warning issued. Many parts of the country were hit by floods just three weeks ago.
