In addition to the floods, the consequences of the catastrophe for the individual villages of Lec, Blanka presses, information about the period press, information about landslides and spawning ponds and other interesting facts are described here. Find out the names of all the victims found and some specific human beings, to the expert, an expert from the Czech hydrometeorological state in St. Nad Labem.

The flood struck on 25 and 26 May 1872 not only north and west, but also the middle of the Czech Republic. In addition to Blanka, it overflowed from the Berounka and Vltava rivers and flooded Prague. The lightning flood on Blanca thus took place a bit in the wall of the event in the most affected Berounka flood, moreover.

What will be built in the athletic museum?
The exhibition marks the largest flood in the history of the Czech lands on May 25, 1872. At that time, in addition to the most affected, the Berounka flood and its tributary, Blanka, then called Zlatok (Goldbach), spread. The basis of the exhibition are information panels, which deal with individual aspects of the fate. In addition to the floods, the consequences of the catastrophe for the individual villages of Lec, Blanka presses, information about the period press, information about landslides and spawning ponds and other interesting facts are described here. Find out the names of all the victims found and some specific human cases. In addition to the information panel, you will see the originals of the selected archives, 3D prints of flood marks and several models that come with the event.

The May flood of 1872 is one of the most extreme hydrometeorological phenomena recorded in the Czech Republic. What was the extreme?
The extremes of the flood of 1872 are mainly due to the nature of the pines. Their uniqueness speaks not only in their numbers, but also in the extraordinary intensities within a few hours and in the range of countries they have seized. The outflow of the situation on the Serbs of such intensity was the dark moment. Many testimonials speak of unprecedented levels of rising in meters within a few minutes. The floods were accompanied by other extreme phenomena such as heavy hail, torso, landslides or spawning ponds.

How much water and in what time dispersion washed? And what is the exact data?
In the second half of the 19th century, the systematic men in the Czech Republic took place in only a few stations, unfortunately many of them did not find themselves in the most affected area. We have information about the pots only from archival publications, where two values ​​of changes of the day in open hours are given, namely 237 millimeters in 1.5 hours in Mladotice and 289 millimeters in 12 hours in Mcholupy.

What was the flood like this?
As I have described it, the main cause of this flood was the extreme floods that hit the land of the plains between Prague, Pbram, Pilsen and Karlovy Vary on May 25.

ka Blanka pat k menm tokm. The water level was just about 20 centimeters in April this year. The flow of water flows through the largest region, ie with the smallest streams in the Czech Republic. What did Blanka serve 150 years ago?
For the exhibition, we tried with the help of modern methods and a mathematical modeling tool to reconstruct the flow that could have flowed in the mine at that time. The main problem was the absence of input data. Only records from chronicles, testimonies of people published in the periodical press and the level of preserved flood marks were bound. The resulting flow, which in the lower reaches of the flood between the railway and Holede was around 350 cubic meters per second, is thus burdened by great uncertainty of input data. Even so, it is an extraordinary flow, its time is repeated in the hundreds of years. The extent of the floods is also illustrated by the levels recorded on authentic flood signs in the railway, which are several meters above the current level.

How many human lives has the flood in Blanca given? Where did it cause the most material codes?
The first reports of floods in all affected areas are about 240 degrees (some sources also mention over 300). Piblin half of them dropped on the village lec according to Blanka. The exact number of obts will probably never be known. He managed to find out data about 108-day-killed victims in the villages along Blanka. From the testimonies of the time, we know that there must have been many more. Some of the fellows have never been found. In any case, this flood has a sad lead in the history of the catastrophes in our country.

In addition to lost human lives, it has caused a spread of material codes throughout the mine. It was mainly about the destroyed agricultural land, especially in hop gardens. A large number of houses and farm buildings were destroyed or completely destroyed. The child had all the affected districts and the largest number of dead pubs. Holede, Liboice, Mcholupy, Kryry or Blany were among the most affected villages.

Did a warning system work at the time to warn of a fool with disaster?
such a warning system did not exist.

Could it have been prevented at all?
What happened on May 25, 1872 could not be stopped.

If the same meteorological phenomena in this region were repeated as 150 years ago, should the floods have the same course? Or would she be jin?
If a similar situation were to recur, the course and consequences would be comparable. We could warn people of the danger of floods, but it is not possible to predict conditions of a similar magnitude with sufficient advance and a place to fall out, even with the current meteorological models. A predictable phenomenon, such as the eruption of a pond, which at that time had a major impact on the course of the flood, is completely out of the question. As then, the people would have to react to the situation very quickly. In addition to large material codes, human victims would probably be affected. The recent floods of events in Germany with many of them show that even modern flood control systems and measures do not prevent disasters of a similar scale.

The exhibition is traveling. Where to start after ateck?
From mid-July, the exhibition will be visible in Podboany. In the autumn in St nad Labem and the arrest of the year in Louny. Due to the fact that the design is as a traveling, I do not rule out that it will be exposed to go elsewhere.
