Persistent rains have raised the water levels of rivers around Bohemia. Warnings are in place throughout the western half of the Czech Republic, with high alerts in the regions of Liberec, Plzeň and Ústí nad Labem. Minor damages have been reported in those regions, consisting mostly of flooded gardens and cellars. In Western Bohemia, 75 children were evacuated from a summer camp due to flooding while in Prague the Vyšehrad station of the metro was closed for several hours on Wednesday when water seeped into the technical control room.
