Floods in the Czech Republic

It can certainly rain and flood in the Czech Republic just as in Houston!

Unfortunately a state of emergency has been declared as a flash flood swept through Moravia last night.

Hundreds of people were evacuated from the towns of Nový Jičín and Jeseník nad Odrou and so far ten have died.  In 1997 this region was hit by a devastating flood that claimed 50 lives.

Let’s keep those families affected by this trama in our prayers in the coming week.
