The eastern parts of the Czech Republic have just seen devastating flash floods that overturned cars, flooded houses and undermined roads after just a few hours of torrential rain. One person was killed, another is missing and damages to property and infrastructure are extensive.

That’s a question I put to hydrobiology expert David Pithart.
