Rivers rising in parts of Bohemia after days of heavy rain

Rivers have been rising in north, central and eastern Bohemia after days of heavy rainfall. The highest level of flood alert is in effect in several places, while two dozen people were evacuated from their homes in Višňov in north Bohemia. A benefit event to raise money for schools damaged in nearby Frýdlant in flooding in the area at the start of August was called off. Forecasters say it should rain every day for the next week.
