Concern about Prague

Reading about flooding in Central Europe brings concerns about Prague.  When we were in the Czech Republic a few years ago, high-water marks and destruction from the previous major flood - 2001, I think, were still evident. It is so sad to think of the historical areas being threatened again. The Charles Bridge has been closed but the latest news seems to be that the waters have crested in Prague but not downstream. The Vitava flows through Cesky Krumlov too so I'm worried about that town we so enjoyed. This painting is of the rooftops of old Prague as seen from the clock tower. I hope the sun shines and the waters subside!
