Prague begins recovery

Prague is preparing to remove the temporary flood walls that were set up along the Vltava river. Flooded roads and tram lines are being revitalized and clean-up work has started in the neighborhoods that were flooded. The water flow of the Vltava in the capital has gone down in the past 24 hours from 3,200 cubic meters per second to 2,500, allowing the Public Transportation Company’s employees to begin preparing the central metro station for reopening to the public, which is expected in the next two days. Five stations were reopened on Wednesday, but a number of others remain closed.
