“This was a critical amount of rainfall, which caused flash floods in areas that are not commonly hit by them,” the Institute’s spokesman Petr Dvorak said. “The weather is going to improve slowly and continually over the next two days and we don’t expect further heavy rainfalls across the country.”
Three have been reported to have drown in Bogatvnia, Poland and three more in Neukirchen, Germany. In the north Bohemia region of the Czech Republic four people lost their lives due to the waters.
