River flows below average for 12 months in row

River flows in three Czech regions have been below average every month for the past year, meteorologists from the Brno branch of the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute have calculated. In August, river flows in the South Moravian region as well as parts of the Zlín and Vysočina regions were at 72 percent of the average monthly flow, making it the twelfth month in a row that river flows were below the long-term monthly average.

The rivers were measured by experts at 71 measuring stations at 39 rivers in the three regions that are under the jurisdiction of the Brno branch of the institute.
