River levels eased overnight across most of the Czech Republic with the highest, level three, flood warnings no longer in effect on the Klabava river near Plzeň. Rainfall is forecast again on Thursday though the Czech weather office believes this will not cause river levels in West Bohemia to significantly rise. Flash floods occurred overnight on streams and rivers in the Jeseník area in the north-east of the country with one rail link already cut there after being undermined by water and a large pond threatening to breaks its banks.
