Another damaging flood hits the Czech Republic
Last Sunday as we headed on the highway to Zbraslav, a village suburb along the Vltava River on the southern outskirts of Prague, the rain continued to beat down on the car roof. Although I’d packed rain jackets, galoshes and a change of clothes for the kids, I questioned if the scheduled barbeque/birthday party in the garden of our friend’s flat would really happen. It had been raining on and off at our house since mid-week, sometimes with heavy downpours. That morning we’d lost electricity, which hadn’t come back on before we’d left.
