Warning: Rivers May Flood


Attention for a public service announcement. If you live near a river, please note: Rivers May Flood. You can remember this with the handy mnemonic, RMF.

High water levels have been recorded in a variety of places around the Czech Republic over the last week. Specific attention has been paid to Prague and places outside-of-Prague. You can see the state of the Danube in Bratislava earlier today for yourselves!

But in all seriousness, yes, there has been some recent flooding in the Czech Republic. Last Thursday Brno was at the ready for a ten-year flood event, which city officials stated "should not cause major problems" (reported Moderní Brno on 29 March 2006). An article from today's Lidové noviny states that thousands of gardens, cottages, and riverside roads were affected in the Brno region, creating an unwelcome spring situation for many people. Their reports, however, also state that floodwaters in south Moravia are already subsiding. Moderní Brno is posting updates at its Web site. You can find English-language updates on the flood situation in Prague and around the Czech Republic at Arellanes's Prague blog.

Like I say, take me to the river. It's time to go wading. (I'll spare you the imaginary rock song my brother invented in high school relating to water. And then there was the inexplicable ongoing joke about "BIG RIVER." We non-prom-bound high school students had a lot of free time to come up with weird stuff when not practicing for orchestra.)
