In early June 2013, widespread flooding in central Europe has inundated swathes of Austria, Germany, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, killing at least 15 people.
Flash floods triggered by days of heavy rain have killed at least four people, forced mass evacuations and cut off power to thousands in central Europe.
At least 10 people died in flooding in the eastern Czech Republic, and rescuers evacuated hundreds of people from wrecked houses and buildings threatened by high water.
