    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     vsevolod told me, 'It's too early to speak about full damage, because the zoo was closed and the Metro in the center was closed. Small towns near Prague are now in the most danger.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Days of torrential rain have carpeted central Europe and turned placid rivers into raging, muddy torrents that have claimed the lives of about eight people and destroyed scores of homes and buildings across the Czech Republic, southern Germany and Austria.
    On 4 june Vltava reach the highest level and now going to drop. City officials have closed eight metro stations to save subway from flooding.
    The famous Prague Zoo evacuated some animals, including gorillas, turtles and tapirs, whose cages could be submerged, the CTK agency said. In August 2002, the zoo was affected by the country’s most disastrous flooding in history, in which many animals were found drowned.
