Homes have been evacuated across southern Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria and Switzerland as rivers reach dangerously high levels.
The Czech capital Prague is on high alert as authorities fear a repeat of the catastrophic floods of August 2002.
The River Vltava has inundated towns and villages upstream of the capital, and one person is known to have died.
