Water levels in northern Bohemia rise, 11 places on flood alert

Water levels in north Bohemian rivers rose overnight, with 11 places in the Karlovy Vary and Liberec regions on flood alert on Monday morning and two places, the Jizera River in Jablonec nad Jizerou and the Elbe in Vestřev, at the highest alert level with a severe risk of flooding. The swollen rivers have, however, not caused any major damage so far.

The Czech Hydrometeorological Institute's warning for rising river levels, issued on Sunday, will remain in place until Tuesday at 6 am.
