Meteorologists warn of rising water levels on number of Czech rivers

Specialists at the Hydrometeorological Institute have warned that water levels on the Berounka, Sázava and Labe rivers are expected to rise throughout Thursday due to continuing rainfall and melting snow. Last weekend, mid to high-level warnings were in effect in the Plzeň, Karlovy Vary and Ústí regions; alerts remain in place in Plzeň and Ustí and meteorologists are continuing to monitor developments. Smaller rivers and streams are also expected to rise, as milder conditions have set in. It is expected to rain through to Saturday.
