Water levels are returning to normal in the northern areas of the Czech Republic where persistent rain put emergency crews on flood alert in the night hours. Likewise swollen rivers in Moravia and Silesia, are reported to have subsided. Although there was no serious flooding as a result of the adverse weather, two people may have lost their lives in the country’s swollen rivers. A raft with four crew members, who risked their lives on the river Lubina, overturned on Saturday and one person is still missing. The second incident was reported from south Bohemia where police on Sunday recovered the body of a woman from a river close to her home.
