LVĢMC has issued a red alert in Latgale and the east of Vidzeme during the period on Tuesday from 9:00 to 21:00.
The alert states that there is a risk of life-threatening flooding, and evacuation might be needed. The movement will be difficult, and electricity, telecoms, and water supply could be impaired. Driving conditions will be dangerous due to reduced visibility. Increased water levels are expected in the rivers.
