Several regions dealing with local floods after hours of torrential rain

The Liberec and Plzen regions are dealing with local floods following hours of torrential rain on Saturday. Heavy rain also swelled streams and rivers in the Děčín and Česká Lípa regions where several dozen people had to be evacuated from their homes. In Mikulášovice in the Děčín region, the dam of a local pond burst, necessitating the evacuation of two nearby villages. A number of roads in the Liberec regions had to be closed off. No one was reported hurt.
