In the centre of the rainstorm as much as 195 mm of rainfall have fallen in the course of 90 minutes. The cloud-burst resulted in more than 100-year flood. The calculated rainfall intensity as well as the specific runoff unit-yield in several localities have been the greatest in the Czech Socialist Republic in this century.
