Eastern regions may see flooding from Thursday evening

Weather forecasters have warned that flooding may occur in the eastern Moravia-Silesia, Olomouc and Zlín regions from Thursday evening as heavy rainfall causes rivers to rise. Small streams in the regions in question could reach the highest level of flood alert, say meteorologists. Water management officials have begun monitoring the situation. Heavy rains are also expected in Bohemia, though flooding is unlikely to occur in the western half of the country.
