Hradec Králové – After Thursday's heavy rains, this morning in Rychnovsk, the lowest first flood stage was at Tichá Orlica in Česká Čermná. The levels of other rivers in Orlické hory were on the decline, according to data from the Elbe Basin. Today in the Hradec Králové region, it is expected to rain occasionally and strong winds will blow, meteorologists said.
Due to the strong wind, both sections of the cable car to Sněžka, which can travel up to a wind speed of 60 kilometers per hour, are out of service. At the top of Sněžka in the morning, the wind had a speed of up to 116 kilometers per hour. According to meteorologists, the wind will blow at a speed of over 70 kilometers per hour today in the mountains.
