Possible flood warning in Rīga

Due to the storm, water levels in Riga water bodies are fluctuating and unpredictable. Therefore, specialists of the Riga Municipal Police Safety on water and civil protection management call on residents who live in flooding areas to follow the situation closely.

The largest flood risk exists for those living in Lucavsala, Vecdaugava, Dārziņi, and near Lake Ķīšezers and Jugla, the police said.

If the situation deteriorates, police call on residents to report it immediately on the phone 110 so that authorities can evacuate residents of flooded areas.

Those who have a possibility to stay overnight elsewhere should consider it , said the police. On Monday from 13:00 to 15:00 water levels rose rapidly but after 16:00 fell again.
