One metro station in Prague was partly flooded

Due to heavy rains yesterday the vestibule of one of the metro stations, Hloubetin (line B), was flooded. The water didn’t get from the vestibule to the platforms or the tracks, however it closed the station for three hours, trains were just passing this station without stopping.

The outside drainage system didn’t manage to accept such an amount of water and the water poured down into the vestibule, the water level there was about one meter high. After 18:00 the station was open again.

Hloubetin metro station was not the only station that had problems with water. In metro station Hradcanska (line A) was a large puddle of water. Firefighters had to pump water out of many cellars. Rain is expected in the coming days as well.
