Level of Danube in Bratislava starts to fall

The Danube River has fallen overnight and by 7:00 on Friday, June 7, stood at 1,016 centimetres. However, hydro-meteorologists warned that the on-going fall will be slow and that the state of emergency would remain in force, the SITA newswire wrote.

The situation also seemed to be improving in both Devín and the rest of Bratislava, but high water levels were expected to continue in the southern regions of Slovakia. The levels of the Morava River and other rivers are also declining.

The flow rate measured under the SNP Bridge in Bratislava in the afternoon reached 10,540 cubic metres per second. "This value represents the highest-ever directly-measured flow rate of the Danube River in Bratislava," said hydrologist Zuzana Danáčová, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
