Czech Republic Declares state of emergency: Two Dead As Flooding Hits

Czech Prime Minister Petr Necas has declared a state of emergency for most of the nation because of severe flooding as swollen rivers threatened Prague's historic centre.

Authorities evacuated low-lying areas in the Czech Republic and limited public transport in the capital as water from the Vltava River burst its banks.

The floods have killed at least two people and several people are missing across the country.
